Federal prosecutors have charged two men with fraud and conspiracy in obtaining and distributing the e-mail addresses of 114,000 iPad 3G owners, The New York Times reports. Each count carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Daniel Spitler, 26, and Andrew Auernheimer, 25, of Goatse Security discovered a security loophole on AT&T's Web site that allowed them to gain access to the addresses and corresponding iPad identification numbers, the report states, including those belonging to military personnel, members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and employees of NASA and the Department of Homeland Security. The Goatse Security group originally stated it exposed the security vulnerability to alert the company to the problem. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
