iPad suffers data breach

A hacker group called Goatse Security has succeeded in acquiring the email addresses of a large number of AT&T subscribers thanks to a security hole in the iPad.

According to Gawker, the hackers managed to persuade AT&T to provide the details using a customer ICC-ID, which links a certain device to a customers SIM card.

The security hole has now been fixed, with AT&T claiming that it was a business customer who warned them of the problem, as opposed to Goatse Security.
