Apple’s security with its devices are breached again. The company is rolling out patches to aid this and protect its users.
The Cupertino, California-based company rolled out a fix for another security hole that makes it very easy for anyone to get a hold of other users’ Apple account that controls most of the Apple services such as Apps, iTunes, iCloud, etc.
Apple made another password reset page for Apple accounts again right after the security hole was breached. According to the reports, the security hole easily allows anyone who is knowledgeable of the users’ full name and date of birth to get a hold of its account by resetting the password. The password reset doesn’t include answering the security questions – this is supposed to be included in the password reset process but Apple failed to provide this. This appears to be the hole that has been patched by the company.
The discovery of the security whole followed just days after Apple rolled out the 2-step verification process to improve the Apple ID account security. In this process, a code sent to the mobile phones is used in conjunction with a conventional password to get a hold of the Apple account again.
