iPad hacker site hacked

The website of the hacker group whose members exposed a hole in AT&T's site for iPad customers was hacked on Tuesday.

The website of the hacker group whose members exposed a hole in AT&T's site for iPad customers was hacked on Tuesday.

For at least a few hours an obscenity-laden message on the Goatse Security site said, "I have taken the liberty of exposing your gaping hole... As you are a group of self-aggrandising [profanity redacted], I have also contacted the media to ensure that this incident gets the coverage it deserves". Goatse Security spokesman Leon Kaiser confirmed the hack. "It appears that someone has found the root password to the Goatse Security blog," he said.

Goatse Security made headlines in June 2010 when it disclosed a vulnerability in the AT&T website and released email addresses and iPad serial numbers for about 120,000 AT&T 3G wireless accounts. Charges were recently brought against two members of the group for the hack.
