IPad Hackers Charged For Email Scheme

Bryan Young

Back in the Summer of last year, a hacker group called Goatse Security found a breach in AT&T's server security that allowed them to access the email addresses of iPad 3G users. They downloaded over one hundred thousand of those email addresses, then alerted AT&T, who promptly fixed the hole. This past week, two of the hackers belonging to that group were each charged with crimes related to that breach.
