AT&T sends out apology emails to iPad 3G customers in wake of security breach

June 13th, 2010 at 7:38 PM

While the fallout continues over last week’s security breach which saw hackers gain access to the email addresses of some 114,000 AT&T iPad 3G customers continues, AT&T’s VP of public policy and Chief Privacy Officer Dorothy Attwood today sent out an email to everyone of AT&T’s iPad 3G data plan subscribers to explain the situation. While email addresses were obtained by the hackers, Attwood contends that the hackers were unable to access more critical things such as account passwords, AT&T’s network, or user’s iPads. Attwood also said that as soon as AT&T learnt of the hack on June 7th, it took swift action to prevent any further unauthorized exposure of customer email addresses” and patched up the hole which made the hack possible “within hours.” Of course this raises the whole question as to why it took AT&T six days to notify its customers that hackers had gained control of some of their personal information, but we imagine the FBI’s investigation into the matter might help clear some things up. You know, that or the surely dozens of lawsuits that are going to be filed over the matter. Hit up the jump to check out the email in its entirety.

Thanks, Adam!
