Hackers: Data Breach Exposed iPad Owners' Personal Info

Higbee said his company has encountered similar holes in which a programmer assumes that data can't be manipulated to look as though it came from the device. A fix would have been to make sure that the program verified that the unique number was coming from the device itself before returning the corresponding e-mail address.

This data breach comes just months after Gizmodo, a Gawker-owned technology blog, published an exclusive story on a leaked next-generation Apple iPhone.
