Marko Karppinen: ‘Apple Just Gave Out My Apple ID Password Because Someone Asked’

Marko Karppinen:

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 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]

This is crazy.
