A Hacker managed to gain access to 114K of AT&T's iPad Users Email Addresses [news.yahoo.com]
It involved an insecure way that AT&T's website would prompt iPad users when they tried to log into their AT&T accounts through the devices.
Nothing like having your account information compromised because AT&T thought it could "make log-ins easier" which speaks volumes of what AT&T thinks about the average technical ability of iPad users.
The hacker group that claims to have discovered the weakness — the group calls itself Goatse Security — said it was able to trick AT&T's site into coughing up more than 114,000 e-mail addresses, including those apparently of famous media personalities and important government officials.
Makes you wonder if AT&T and Apple even tested the log-in process or had anyone do a simple security analysis before making it live as this seems like a bad idea anyone with a security background would've caught right away.
