The Consequences of Forgery

Okay, so someone faked an email so it looked like it was credible from Apple internal, so it got reported as news. Then information came from Apple that it was fake.

But here's the interesting part:

This is why authentication to e-mails is important, and technologies such as PGP were created. The world nowadays online identity is critical. I sign most of my e-mails, through the Enigmail plugin for Thunderbird. More people should do the same.

EDIT: I'm not sure what was wrong, but for some reason this wasn't publishing. Now I finally got it to work (somehow), so just FYI this is an older entry.
