If you own a cellular Apple 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.
According to the data we were given by the web security group that exploited vulnerabilities on the AT&T network, we believe 114,000 user accounts have been compromised, although it’s possible that confidential information about every iPad 3G owner in the U.S. has been exposed. We contacted Apple for comment but have yet to hear back. We also reached out to AT&T for comment.
