It looks like a bad day at AT&T as news of a breach to AT&T had
exposed 114,000 email addresses associated to 3G iPad owners.

The hacker group: Goatse Security, was able to collect email addresses associated with the
SIM integrated circuit card identifiers (ICC).

As a result from the exploit of the security, the number of emails collected include some big names from very important positions – Rahm Emanuel “White House’s Chief Of Staff”, Michael Bloomberg “New York Mayor”, etc

AT&T have acknowledged this problem and fixed the issue. One wonders how much strain is put on Apple-AT&T relationship due to this issue.
