Computerworld: The Department of Justice has announced that it is filing criminal charges against two men who accessed personal information for approximately 120,000 iPad users. Andrew Auernheimer made headlines last June when he discovered that AT&T's Web site was disclosing e-mail addresses and unique ID numbers for some iPad owners. He wrote a script to extract the information and posted it publicly, saying that he wanted to call attention to AT&T's security lapse. He now faces one count of conspiracy to access a computer without authorization and one count of fraud.
Another man, Daniel Spitler, will face the same charges related to the incident.
