In 2012 hacker and internet troll Andrew "Weev" Auernheimer found a public AT&T server that contained email addresses and names of Ipad3G users. Using a script he took a sample of the data and presented it to Gawker. The FBI later opened a criminal investigation into Weev even though no security bypass was used.
On November 20th 2012 Auernheimer was convicted of two felonies for his role in discovering the leak.
