Federal prosecutors in New Jersey are announcing the arrests of two men -- one from San Francisco -- accused of stealing e-mail addresses and other information from more than 100,000 Apple iPad users, including that of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, among a who's who of dignataries, according to previous reports.
Spitler is scheduled to appear in federal court in Newark on Tuesday afternoon. Auernheimer is to appear before a federal judge in Fayetteville, Ark.
AT&T Inc. in June acknowledged a security weak spot that exposed the e-mail addresses of apparently more than 100,000 iPad users.
The company said the vulnerability affected only iPad users who signed up for AT&T's "3G'' wireless Internet service.
The U.S. attorney's office will hold an afternoon news conference on the investigation.
