Perhaps more to the story

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that it was investigating a security breach on AT&T’s Web site that allowed a security group to obtain the e-mail addresses of 114,000 iPad 3G owners.

The group also obtained the identification numbers known as ICC-IDs that those iPads use to communicate over AT&T’s network.

“The F.B.I. is aware of these possible computer intrusions and has opened an investigation to address the potential cyberthreat,” said Jason Pack, a supervisory special agent with the F.B.I.’s news media office.
