Honan hacked – who’s to blame?

This has me rethinking how my various accounts are linked.  As Marco Arment pointed out, there is nothing he could have done to make his password more secure (although making them secure certainly closes a couple of doors to would-be hackers).  Amazon has tightened its security following the hack1, and Apple has yet to respond, but that doesn’t cover the hundreds of other companies out there that are in your security chain.

UPDATE: Wired reports that Apple puts a 24 hour freeze on password resets to figure out what to do next (via 9 to 5 Mac).
