Apple disables iForgot password recovery page after exploit discovered

Apple disables iForgot password recovery page after vulnerability allows simple password recovery
| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Mar 22, 2013 10:42 pm

After a security hole was discovered in Apple's iForgot password recovery page that allowed passwords to be recovered with just an e-mail and date of birth, Apple has disabled the page for obvious reasons. Navigating to the page now returns a "Currently Unavailable" status message that suggests you "check back later."

Make sure to enable two-step authentication on your account to help protect from future vulnerabilities such as this.

 

At the time of writing, Apple's page continually timed out for both my coworkers and myself.
