As many as 114,000 e-mail addresses were exposed by Hackers and potentially it could lead to use of Spam mail. The email addresses were accessible through a program on AT&T’s website. When the leak was made public earlier this week, there was a big outrage from Apple iPad users.

FBI has started its probe into this issue. Lindsay Godwin, bureau spokeswoman refused to reveal any specific information about the FBI Probe. Goatse Security was the first web firm which found this iPad flaw and made this issue public. They did it with a motive of providing safety to Apple iPad Users.

The email addresses of popular celebrities, government officials were also accessed by the Hackers. But AT&T has now confirmed that this problem is resolved and it hopes nothing bad happens due to this expose.
