MYB: Hack attack exposes major security loophole with Amazon and Apple

(CNNMoney) - The recent hacking of Mat Honan was doubly shocking: he's a writer for tech Bible Wired, and hackers were able to crack his account with non-technical ease.

Here's the scariest part: Anyone with both an Amazon account and an Apple ID is potentially vulnerable to the same attack.

The two companies say they're working to close the security gaps exposed by Honan's hack, but they were tight-lipped on Tuesday about the details of what changes they're making.

Poppy Harlow explains Honan's situation on Early Start this morning and discusses the security concerns the incident has raised.

      I can see why you might think that is a broken poisrme but I do disagree. There was a liberal (as you might know) that was clogging the courthouse with lawsuits against Sarah it was costly MILLIONS of taxpayer money. He showed no signs of letting up. Why the judge kept allowing these lawsuits, like Sarah wearing a warm coat that happened to have a logo on it when she was jogging or at a governor function outdoors there were several lawsuits alone on just that like the Nike emblem on her coat and he even sued her for having Greta in her office on an interview (company time). It was also costing her personally Millions too! She was spending every day in court fighting these frivolous suits and not being able to be the governor. It was hard for her to step down, but she did what was right for the people that elected her. The lawsuits stopped when she resigned. The Palin hate is palable. She still fights many death threats against her and her family daily. You know this myth has got to stop. Obama was not called a quitter when he only served his Senator term for a matter of days. He campaigned for almost 2 years before the election. Any governor that runs, like George W. they did not call him a quitter. Palin did so much in the short time she was there, she still promotes Alaska and is active in it's growth and prosperity with every move she makes. She doesn't have to have a title to do that. I think she would make a hellofa great President too!Sarah Palin could not perform her duties and the voters understood. But the armchair quarterbacks don't.Reply
