BoingBoing: Report: AT&T security breach exposed 114k iPad users

http://www.boingboing.net/2010/06/09...-security.html

Quote:
If you own a cellular iPad, an AT&T web address has exposed your personal info to anyone wily enough to ping it, reports Ryan Tate at Gawker. Your email address, and a tracking ID unique your SIM card, were open to any who may have discovered the hole before it was closed.
Kudos to Boingboing for realizing this was an AT&T security breach.

Wonder if I'm on the list? :/

Thankfully, the only people the information is useful to are spammers.

Unthankfully, they're most likely to use it.

iPhone Spirit JB + MyWi... the only way to fly.

I still can't understand the appeal of $150 more for the device + more $/month for the 3G privilige. The iPad replaced my previously tethered laptop so this was the natural way to go for me.

This does make me wonder about iPhone personal data security though...

When I need 3G I just go to a local restaurant with free wi-fi instead. I get some exercise in the process.

And I don't have to pay anything

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/0...curity-breach/

Quote:
On Sunday evening, AT&T sent an e-mail to owners of the Apple 3G iPad notifying them of a security breach that was publicized early last week.

The e-mail, which was sent by Dorothy Attwood, a senior vice president and chief privacy officer at AT&T, explained that a number of iPad 3G owners’ e-mail addresses and private identification numbers known as an ICC-ID were made public through a breach in AT&T’s Web site. The company also apologized for the security error.
I did not get an email, so....good news I guess?

The hope is that when they fixed the bug that allowed this access for the iPad, they addressed any similar bugs affecting other devices in the same scripts.
