Apple and Amazon security flaws lead to 'epic hacking'
A colleague distributed this link today: How Apple and Amazon Security Flaws Led to My Epic Hacking | Gadget Lab | Wired.com
Dear lord, I felt sick reading it. It was well worth the 10 minutes it took me to read it and has made me seriously question how my accounts are linked together - Amazon and Apple specifically.
I posted it here as it relates to abuse of iCloud and cloud-related interconnectivity of accounts.

I'm pleased to hear this is being addressed. I didn't find the original link it was distributed by a colleague who prefers to remain anonymous so thanks for the follow ups.

It looks like Matt got most of his data back, thanks in part to cloud-based backups and a data recovery company.
How I Resurrected My Digital Life After an Epic Hacking « Wired
When my data died, it was the cloud that killed it. The triggers hackers used to break into my accounts and delete my files were all cloud-based services — iCloud, Google, and Amazon. Some pundits have latched onto this detail to indict our era of cloud computing. Yet just as the cloud enabled my disaster, so too was it my salvation.
Yes, you can die by the cloud. But you can live by it too. Here’s how I regained my digital life after it was taken away from me.
