iPad 3G Leak Flaw More Common than You Think

Pc World: AT&T is taking some well-deserved heat for a Web security flaw resulting in the exposure of more than 114,000 iPad 3G owners' e-mail addresses. Apple--by proxy--has also drawn some criticism as it apparently has some culpability in defining the authentication mechanism that was exploited. It is obviously a huge embarrassment for both AT&T and Apple, but the underlying issues, and other Web security issues like it, are actually quite common.

The story is too old to be commented.
