Apple backs down from barring widow her dead husband's passwords

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me this is just lost in translation!

[A]n Apple staffer told her they would need a court order to hand over the password.

PLEASE tell me this is actually about resetting a password, not retrieving a password.

If Apple staff are actually able to retrieve users' passwords, then Apple security is hopelessly broken.
