Even as the spotlight is firmly focused on Apple’s shiny new iPhone 4, the iPad 3G is making headlines of its own, but for all the wrong reasons. A new security breach has been found that could leave the iPad 3G vulnerable to spam, malicious hacking, and it could also lead to exposing user’s personal data thanks to a gap in AT&T’s security.

The breach was discovered by the hacker group Goatsee Security, an online group that finds exploitable holes in technology and passes the information on to media outlets to get the word out. In this case, they sent Gawker the details of 114,067 users, all among the earliest of iPad 3G users.

The list includes celebrities like Diane Sawyer, business moguls like film producer Harvey Weinstein and CEO Janet Robinson, as well as political figures Mayor Michael Bloomberg and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. It also included several high ranking government officials from various branches of the military and the government.
