Wired Gadget Lab’s senior writer Mat Honan's digital life was hacked last week. In addition to a detailed article on Monday, he also gave a rather jarring interview about what happened and the entire thing comes off like an episode of I Survived (though not nearly as bad because, oh my god, that show is utterly terrifying and beyond lurid). Describing himself as "intimately tied to his devices," he's now paranoid about his daily online use. Understandably so.
Honan also goes into detail about his online communications with the person who took control of his Amazon account, AppleID, and GMail, asking them if they felt any remorse for what they had done. (Spoiler: they do!) In the end, Honan's simple advice is to back up your stuff and sign up for two-factor authentication on Google.
