Perhaps you heard some news about 100k+ iPad user emails and other info getting exposed? Well turns out that the leak happened due to an unprotected AT&T web server, not due to any flaws related to Apple’s iPad. What’s interesting about this story is not the data leak itself, but rather how it seems that all the media outlets are reporting this as “the most serious Apple security flaw to date” when really if you had to point fingers AT&T gets that honor this time, not Apple. Even media outlets with the technical chops to know better are getting this story wrong.
Here’s a link from Advisen, who ironically is the least technical resource on my daily read list, but were the only ones so far who reported this story correctly, enjoy:
