tsk tsk tsk, the silliest security breach at Apple.com

ArsTechnica - Marko Karppinen, CEO of the MK&C development house out of Helsinki, Finland, had his account password and login changed at the request of someone that wasn't him. What did it take to get around Apple's strenuous security protocols for this type of thing? This well-crafted letter:

"am forget my password of mac,did you give me password on new email marko.[redacted]@yahoo.com"

Of course, after that kind of sweet talk, the account info was handed right over, much to the chagrin of the actual Marko. With just this one slip-up, Apple compromised his e-mail, iDisk, .Mac syncs, credit card details, iTunes Store account, ADC Premier membership, and his iPhone Developer Program details. The Premier membership alone is worth around $3,000.



Would you get a Mac account now?

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
