Yeah Xylem. The greater the market for your device the more tempting it becomes for hackers.
Just wait until the e-mails for all of the HP printers leak out. :)
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I remember how I was explaining to my friend who wanted to argue about viruses for Mac vs Windows computers. I had to tell him that people have already made Mac viruses, but they choose to attack Windows computers because the majority of the computer owner population owns windows based computers.
I wrapped up my statement by telling him that when more people get Mac devices that the hackers will begin to target those as well.
Isn't Apple's security department being neglected? Not so much anymore.
This is the one reason I have never gotten an iPhone, the network. I don't like At&t, I don't think there competent, I abhor there business practices, and do not trust there network. Long ago I actually had a contract with them, and know how spotty there coverage is. So it does not surprise me at all that this happened because it is expected.
Another day, another black eye for AT&T.
SPAM-posters beware! ®
GET USED TO IT!!
These are just a little stepping stone just like the web cams in the high schools, just to get people used to things like this. Why are we not looking around ourselves to find the hackers and put an end to that? We only do just enough, they then get happy when new infrastructures like Antivirus companies get developed.
Know History....No History....?
"Watch It happened here!"
Slow but poignant.
@Marius: This has nothing to do with Apple security. The e-mail addresses were copied from a non-Apple server thanks to a brain-dead script that returns the email based on hardware ID.
