Well, I think that would only work with a 4-digit password, otherwise the method might take years, decades or even centuries. I'm glad I have the finger print sensor, so I can set a really long password.

My actual password is 16 digit long with letters and numbers. :D So these news don't bother me at all.

There should be some reasonable steps be taken by APPLE in this regard.
