Jail Looms for Man Who Revealed AT&T Leaked iPad User E-Mails

2012.11.21.09:08

AT&T screwed up in 2010, serving up the e-mail addresses of over 110,000 of its iPad 3G customers online for anyone to find. But today Andrew Auernheimer, an online activist who pointed out AT&T's blunder to Gawker Media, which went on to publicize the breach of private information, is the one in federal court this week.His case highlights some potentially troubling disconnects between the practicalities of online life and the rule – and application – of the law.To ensure the Crushing equipment is in good technical condition, ready to be put into operation, reduce downtime, improve crusher good rates, utilization, reducing crusher wear and prolong the service life of the crusher.Auernheimer, whose pugnacious online persona is Weev, is up on two counts, each with the potential to land him with five years in jail.

The more concerning charge to online activists watching Weev's case is based on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which forbids "unauthorized access" to a computer. Weev and a fellow hacker who originally uncovered AT&T's mistake and collected the e-mails didn't ask the company for permission to access the Web addresses that shared iPad users' private information. But those Web addresses weren't hidden behind password prompts or any kind of protection – they were publicly accessible. Getting AT&T's system to spit out a customer's e-mail address simply required visiting an AT&T web address with a particular – and easy to guess – code tagged onto the end.Groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) worry that should that charge succeed it will become easy to criminalize many online activities,Impact crusher including work by well-intentioned activists looking for leaks of private information or other online security holes. Weev's case hasn't received much attention so far, but should he be found guilty this week it will likely become well known, fast.Professional Manufacturer of Mobile crushing plant,Mobile Crusher Station,
Samsung has been selling mobile phones since the 1980s. During the third quarter, the Suwon, South Korea-based company had 28 percent of the U.S. market to Apple's 34 percent, said Alex Spektor, an analyst with Strategy Analytics in Boston.In addition to the settlement with Android-handset maker HTC reached this month, Apple said Nov. 15 it is negotiating an agreement with Google's Motorola Mobility unit for binding arbitration of their disputes over how to license patents relating to technical standards all device makers must follow. A HTC-like resolution of the Apple-Samsung fight doesn't appear to be coming anytime soon. Shin Jong Kyun, the head of Samsung's mobile unit, was quoted in Korean media last week as saying the company wasn't going to negotiate with Apple.
