A group called AntiSec, linked to international hacker movement Anonymous, claims that it has broken into an FBI computer to obtain the User IDs of 12 million Apple iPad and iPhone owners, which include private user data.
Apple has declared that it has nothing to do with any collection of data by the FBI, while the U.S. federal investigators insist they never had the data in question in the first place. But even as the source of the data leak remains a mystery, at least one million and possibly up to 12 million Apple users have had their private information compromised. An expert, or a government, could use this information to monitor millions of users at a time.
