Clearwire's 4G iSpot gets hacked

Clearwire's 4G iSpot, a portable hotspot device that allows users to connect up to eight iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads at once, has a new hack. Jaku, one of the original hack developers, has found that using a specific IP address and some Web coding, one can take advantage of a security flaw in the device and gain remote access to the iSpot and add any machine to it. Jaku notified Clearwire of the flaw. Article
