It may be safer to connect to the Internet on your iPad with a wireless signal than with AT&T's 3G network: After discovering that the network had some security flaws, Daniel Spitler and Andrew Auernheimer—two hackers associated with a group of "self-professed Internet trolls" known as Goatse Security—allegedly stole email addresses and data from approximately 120,000 iPad users last June. According to prosecutors, the hackers targeted a slew of celebrity and business executives, including political moguls such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, as well as ABC's Diane Sawyer and Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein. The hackers submitted their findings to Gawker last June, which published some of of the details. Spitler and Auernheimer are being charged for "brute force" hacking, using an "account slurper" to randomly guess at user data until it matched names with emails. Both Apple and AT&T have declined to comment.
