DailyTech reports a bug on AT&T's website enabled security researchers from Goatse Security to gather a list of e-mail addresses and ICC-IDs of more than 114,000 iPad 3G purchasers.
The names of victims immediately draw attention to the story. Among them are New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson, Diane Sawyer of ABC News, film mogul Harvey Weinstein, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and even White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. A number of CEOs, CFOs, and CTOs also had their email addresses exposed by the leak.
Additionally, a number of the email addresses exposed were from high-ranking military officials or DARPA researchers. Among these was William Eldredge, who "commands the largest operational B-1 [strategic bomber] group in the U.S. Air Force."
