A security hole in AT&T’s website has leaked out data on more than 100,000 iPad owners, including government and military officials, corporate CEOs, and media executives, according to Gawker, which calls the leaked information “the most exclusive e-mail list on the planet.”

The personal data includes e-mail addresses and ICC-IDs — a unique ID that’s used to authenticate the SIM card in a customer’s iPad to AT&T’s network.

The leak snagged the details of dozens of elite iPad early adopters such as New York Mayor Michael Boomberg, anchorwoman Diane Sawyer of ABC News, New York Times CEO Janet Robinson and Col. William Eldredge, commander of the 28th Operations Group at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel also appears to be among the victims, Gawker reports, as do dozens of people at NASA, the Justice Department, the Defense Department, the Department of Homeland Security and other government offices. CLICKY to read more.

oh yeah can you say opps. So in the end wonder who is to blame AT&T or Apple (or both). I guess Apple doesn't need to worry about viruses just leaks and huge ones at that. Guess iPads and BP have something in common.....leaks. Laughing
