iPad 3G hacker arrested on unrelated charges

Andrew Auernheimer, a key member of the Goatse Security group that recently went public with its exploitation of an AT&T security hole that exposed the email addresses of tens of thousands iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G customers, has been arrested on a number of unrelated felony charges. Cnet reports that Auernheimer was arrested following the execution of a FBI search warrant, and is charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor possession charge, with the drugs including cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and schedule 2 and 3 pharmaceuticals. Auernheimer, writing under the first name Escher, recently penned a response to AT&T regarding the security attack, claiming that AT&T “would have never fixed” the problem if his group hadn’t gone public.
