Apple’s epic insecurity

Yikes! If you use Find my iPhone/iPad/Mac, all that Apple requires to authenticate your identity is your mailing address, and the last four digits of your credit card number. Those are the same digits that get displayed in plaintext everywhere since you can’t do anything with just them. With that easily-obtained information, an attacker can remotely wipe and brick all your Apple devices.
