Site of AT&T-iPad hackers is hacked

by Elinor Mills

The Web site of the hacker group whose members were charged with computer crimes after they exposed a hole in AT&T's site for iPad customers last year was hacked today.

An obscenity-laden message on the Goatse Security site says: "I have taken the liberty of exposing your gaping hole...As you are a group of self-aggrandizing [profanity redacted], I have also contacted the media to ensure that this incident gets the coverage it deserves.

"In cracking this site, I have sent specially crafted requests to the server with my browser ID spoofed to that of an iPad. Please know that while this was not instrumental in this wondrous crack, it _WAS_ poetic in many ways. I also gave Goatsec the same warning that they gave AT&T... none at all, to patch their gaping hole. User Accounts have been deleted, and passwords changed," the note says
