oh snap... :pinch:

[b]update:[/b] "We've had a little more time to explore the hack and have yet more bad news to report. Yesterday a number of users were told they'd need to wait three days before enabling two-step verification. As a result, these accounts are fully vulnerable to the exploit. As of right now, the only surefire way these individuals can avoid the security threat is by change their birthdate on Apple's account settings page. This option is located at the bottom of "Password and Security.""
