NYC mayor, one of 100,000 affected by iPad security flaw, says not big deal


NEW YORK — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was among the 100,000 iPad users whose e-mail addresses were exposed because of a security vulnerability, but he is shrugging it off and says he doesn't think it's a big deal.

The billionaire mayor has spent the last several weeks touting his iPad as a helpful tool for managing a city of 8.4 million people.

The former CEO of the financial information company Bloomberg LP said Thursday that his e-mail address isn't hard to figure out.

AT&T Inc. acknowledged a security weakness Wednesday. It said it was notifying all iPad users whose e-mail addresses may have been exposed.

The company said the e-mail addresses were the only information that would have been revealed.
