If customers aren't on fire after todays iPhone 4 pre-ordering fiasco this just might light them up. Gizmodo is reporting that todays "iPhonecalypse" is due to what an AT&T insider says was caused by "a major fraud update that went wrong. " The result: exposure of an unknown number of users' private AT&T information.
We feel like we are at a baseball game and the score is AT&T four, and the rest of us, a big fat zero. We are four for four in failed iPhone launches with AT&T appearing to be the one to blame once again. The day started off badly and it doesn't look like things are going to get better any time soon as iPhone 4 customers continue to complain about not being able to pre-order Apple's latest iPhone.
The hacker group responds to AT&T's earlier apologies, and that they're not thrilled with the kind of PR that they've been getting. Goatse Security doesn't feel their act was 'malicious' as AT&T said. They felt they did more of a public service.
You know it’s coming, and you know you want one. But do you know where and how to get one? Tuesday, June 15 is the official iPhone 4 pre-order date, and MacLife.com is here to give you all the details on a safe and trouble-free pre-order.
You'll recall that last week there was a bit of a stink made over personal details belonging to iPad 3G owners recieving data services from AT&T. According to the New York Times, AT&T spent the weekend apologizing to a horde of disgruntled iPad 3G users who suffered a data breach.
You may have heard tell of there being a wee bit of a privacy breach involving the iPad yesterday. The short of it is that a whole lot of iPad 3G users had their Email addresses and the ICC-ID information thrown out into the open air for everyone to see.
Who's to blame for the breach? There seem to be two different camps on this issue growing in the Apple blogosphere: One blaming Apple, the other blaming AT&T.
Over the past few weeks, an AT&T security breach has been exposed on over 114,000 3G iPads. Goatse Security, the Hacker group that performed the atrocity, bragged about it to the Gawker network. The group apparently tinkered with an AT&T website-side script that would send them the e-mail addresses associated with the ICC-IDS of the SIM cards located in the iPads. The group then managed to collect a large number of personal information, including some high profile accounts like that of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
