114,000 IPad 3G Owners' Email Addresses Exposed By AT&T

Re: ( http://www.securitypronews.com )

A group called Goatse Security was able to grab 114,067 personal email addresses of iPad buyers from AT&T's website.

Some of the Email addreses leaked include White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, New York City Mayer Michael Bloomberg, Diane Sawyer of ABC News, and many CEOs, CFO, and CTO's. A number of the email addresses exposed were even those of DARPA researchers and high-ranking military officials.

Each iPad comes with an ICC-ID or an "integrated circuit card identifier." The subscriber's SIM card and ICC-ID are linked to uniquely identify them. Normally this data would not be publicly accessible.

I remember Intel using a CPU number uniquely identify them, and getting into trouble over this.
