WAKE UP CALL: Apple and Amazon Security Flaw

Apple and Amazon both have a VERY major security flaw. Mat Honan, a writer at wired.com was recently hacked. The article is very interesting, and the hack works. You should follow the instructions, and try it on yourself. This is a wake up call to everyone, back up your data, use 2-factor authentication, and don’t link all of your accounts together. When Mat was hacked, a strong password didn’t matter, only 2-factor authentication would have. Don’t let this happen to you!

 

UPDATE: Amazon has fixed the security issue, you can no longer change your credit card number or email through the phone. GOOD JOB AMAZON 🙂

 

Luckily, the 19-year-old didn’t ruin him financially either….he could of!
