After Honan’s hack, Apple suspends over-the-phone AppleID password resets →

Wired:

Apple on Tuesday ordered its support staff to immediately stop processing AppleID password changes requested over the phone, following the identity hacking of Wired reporter Mat Honan over the weekend, according to Apple employees.

Apple is reacting to the hack with a temporary solution (stopping password changes requested over the phone), but it hasn’t changed its internal policies yet, unlike Amazon.
