I have written before about the ease of AppleID theft and about how people keep trying to do it to me (and they still keep trying; the last attempt was only a few weeks ago). Now it appears someone else is suffering and actually wrote about it.
Apple, when will you please fix this?
I tried to log in to Apple Developer Connection this morning to find out that my password had been changed and the email associated with my account was now a yahoo.com address that wasn’t mine. Luckily, my “security question” was still the same, so I was able to reset the password and email address back.
Based on the emails that have appeared in my .Mac mailbox, this was accomplished by sending this classy one-liner to Apple:
am forget my password of mac,did you give me password on new email marko.[redacted]@yahoo.com
To which Apple reacted by doing the only reasonable thing – saying Sir, Yes Sir!
