Study Finds Apple.com #1 in Protecting User Security

A recent study rated websites on their security practices for protecting users from having their accounts hacked. The study scored websites from -100 to 100 (you lost points for bad practices). Apple.com scored a perfect 100. Amazon scored a -40. I could recount the article, but you should head over to arstechnica.com and read it:

Before anybody says so, let me point out that this study is far from perfect. Still it is interesting to see. I think much of the important security for protecting users is done behind the firewall. Those sort of things cannot be measured externally.
