The private emails of thousands of iPad owners may have exposed due to a security loophole on AT&T's 3G network.
Gawker reports that a web security group calling itself Goatse Security has managed to filch the email addresses of thousands of iPad owners by writing computer code that exploits a feature on AT&T's website that returns the email address associated with an iPad owner's unique ID on the network, known as the ICC-ID.
Goatse says it notified AT&T of the breach and that the security loop has has been closed, but not before other parties became aware of the code.
A member of Goatse told Gawker that as many as 114,000 iPad owner accounts may have been compromised.
The email addresses that have been exposed belong to thousands of "A-listers in finance, politics and media," including New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson, Diane Sawyer of ABC News, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and more.
