Rich Mogull on the iCloud Celebrity Photo Leak

Rich Mogull, writing for TidBITS:

But Apple, like all major cloud providers, needs to step up its game, especially since it wants to store our photos, biometric information, and possibly even payment information in the cloud. These kinds of attacks are only going to increase, and online services need to make it easier for users to implement a higher level of security, without destroying the user experience. It’s the kind of challenge well-suited to Apple’s strengths, now it’s time for them to move up to the next level.

But what is the next level? I’m not sure two-factor is it, or at least not as currently implemented by Apple.
