Apple suffers huge security breach
« on: June 10, 2010, 06:43:56 AM »

Apple has suffered another embarrassment. A security breach has exposed iPad owners including dozens of CEOs, military officials, and top politicians. They—and every other buyer of the cellular-enabled tablet—could be vulnerable to spam marketing and malicious hacking.

Although it was Apple customers that was affected, technically it was AT&T who had the security breach.

Runs beautifully.

Haven't figured out how to turn off the Wireless, but it's great.

I can't really say I like or dislike Apple products.  I've used several over the years.  (But I really can't see the point to the Ipad).

But I've got to say what a lot of Windows users probably feel, after years of Apple saying security problems only happen to MS users, it just goes to show that security problems can happen to any system.
