U.S. investigators have the intention of announcing criminal charges where the alleged theft of email addresses as well as other personal information belonging to around 120,000 users of Apple’s famous iPad tablet computer happened recently. The charges will focus on the alleged hacking of AT&T Inc’s servers, where there is a sizeable number of iPad users who were affected having accessed the Internet through AT&T’s 3G network. According to Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey, they and the FBI intend to hold a press conference later this afternoon in order to discuss the charges further, followed by an action plan. If you’re going to store data on your portable device that runs a pretty high risk of it being lost of stolen, we would highly recommend getting some sort of encryption software to go along with it.
