My iCloud Password is “iCloud”

I guess the editor at  MCP  Magazine who fired me for talking about  passphrases  and ways to secure your passwords is looking rather foolish at this point. Years and years ago, I wrote an article on securing passwords – only to be told that I was out of touch with reality when I suggested that everyone needed to use more secure passwords.  With the latest attack on the  iCloud  due to weak and pathetic passwords, you’d think that ​  the attack’s victims would have appreciated learning the password strategies I was advocating 10 years ago! Apple now is saying that it is not their fault that the nude pictures of so many celebrities were obtained from their cloud storage ​ .   Does that mean that the weak questions for  iCloud  password recovery aren’t their responsibility either?  I truly hope that this latest attack on the  iCloud  opens the eyes of everyone who uses social media, social networking, centralized cloud storage, and other online resources
