• iPad “breach” – another sensationalistic Web flaw

    10 Jun 2010

    NewsFactor has a nice piece on the recent AT&T iPad “breach” that tells the story of how a code on AT&T’s site was cracked exposing email addresses of iPad users. So, some criminals gleaned some email addresses from a telecom provider…In the grand scheme of things: big deal.

    I agree with Sophos’ Paul Ducklin – I think this is being overblown…just like the sensationalism brought forth by my recent bit on CSRF.

    Sure, it’s an exploit and shame on AT&T for not finding it before someone else did. But, in the end, it’s about priorities and level of exposure – you know, all that boring behind the scenes stuff that no one bothers to mention.
