I started reading the link you provided and the links within the link you provided. Based on these links, I highly suggest yous stop using your Apple ID (if you are using it) for any important purpose. I also highly suggest you stop using Apple's cloud service (in fact any cloud service) for any serious purpose. Second, I highly suggest you unlink any service you use that is linked to your Apple ID.

Based on what I read, Apple's security is virtually non-existent to social engineering. Perhaps, it had the luxury of NOT being hacked until recently, therefore, inexperienced compared to Microsoft and other big tech companies. Either that or their catering to the less tech-savvy folks made them weaken their security procedures. In either case, I would not trust Apple with anything important, if I were you.

Anyway, you can verify what I say by reading the links you provided yourself. Apple ID seems to be one of the weakest link in all of these issues.
