Security hole exposes iPad users' e-mails
Thursday - 6/10/2010, 8:30am EDT
- Your iPad has a security weak spot. AT&T has acknowledged it, and claims they've fixed it. The security hole exposes email addresses of more than 100,000 users of the iPad. It only impacts iPad users who signed up for the 3G service. It involved an insecure way that AT&T's website would prompt iPad users when they tried to log into their AT&T accounts. The hacker group that claims to have discovered the weakness says it was able to trick AT&T's site into coughing up more than 114,000 e-mail addresses.
- A bill expected later today in the Senate would give the Department of Homeland Security broad new powers over federal civilian networks. The measure would give DHS responsibility for oversight and enforcement of IT security on those networks. It would also create a separate office in the White House to work toward that goal. The bill is sponsored by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Me.).
