Lack of Monitoring Led To iPad Owner Compromise

Tenable Network Security : 14 June, 2010  (Technical Article)
Exploit at AT&T leading to loss of iPad user information may have been down to poor monitoring, according to Tenable Network Security CEO
Further to the news that a security leak has left US Apple iPad owners at risk, Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security outlines how any failure on AT&T's part was due to a lack of monitoring and alerting when the brute force queries began.

'AT&T may have had the world's best patching and security program and this box may have resisted penetration attempts from the best tools and attackers. However, the web service exploited to obtain the iPad user emails worked by design. If there was any failure on AT&T's part it was a lack of monitoring and alerting when the brute force queries began or not conducting a detailed enough risk assessment."
