Third-party apps should be better than anything Apple could put out, anyways. Apple is too busy paying their lawyers; coders are a second thought.

There is no excuse for printing the hacker handle of theives such as these. There is no other possible use for this except to unlock stolen goods to increase their value to those who stole them. What ever happened to any sense of integrity?

Those guys don't appear to be thieves. They alerted apple and are not revealing to the public how to do it. They are helping get things fixed.

This is the part that scares me: "they spent five months --- ***studying the way data passes from iOS devices to Apple's iCloud servers*** --- before they figured out their hack."

There are some of us who have a younger sibling who forgot their apple/icloud password and chose to use a random security question of which they cannot recall. We called Apple and they want a proof of purchase from Christmas last year for the device. My in-laws do not have that so they refused to help altogether. I was blown away.

Their must be at least a few circumstances where young people forget their password AND their recovery password for their e-mail (which is typically the same), and their security question does not help. My in-law is bullied at school so he chose another date of birth as his security question so his bullies don't harass his Apple account. Anyhow, I look forward to bypassing this so I can return his Apple device in a working state.

2 months and Apple haven't took their heads out of their collective backsides. This is what happens when a company gets too big and ignores its users. Microsoft have sort of learnt this, Google are slowly getting there, Apple and Facebook are in LA LA land !

The fact you're typing in all capital shows your intelligence and maturity level.
