Hackers have managed to get the email addresses of over 100,000 iPad owners, including those of many people like New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, reported Wednesday a specialized site. The iPad versions are concerned with access 3G and a subscription to the telecom giant AT&T. Of the 114,000 email addresses are those of dozens of company heads, military leaders or political figures.
"There's no hack, no infiltration, and no breach, just a really poorly-designed Web application that returns e-mail address when ICC-ID is passed to it," Praetorian said late Wednesday on its security blog.
AT&T has turned off access to the feature Tuesday, and apologized to customers in a statement that was issued yesterday. They also stated that only e-mail addresses linked to each ICC-ID has been snatched from its servers, not financial information or other personal data.
