Last summer Wired senior writer Matt Honan became news after hackers hijacked his online life, taking over his Google, Twitter and, worst of all, AppleID. In under an hour, Hackers erased all data on his MacBook hard drive, iPad and iPhone. The epic social engineering hack was the best thing that could ever happen to his career. Honan took his digital violation personally and carefully documented how he was victimized, leading to security policy changes at Apple and Amazon. Now, four months after being hacked, Honan reports that passwords are quickly becoming obsolete as a standalone security measure. He offers tips to fight digital identity theft and provides an overly lengthy but fact-filled report.
