AT&T iPad hacker pleads guilty to stealing data
Daniel Spitler is facing up to 10 years in prison for his role in the theft of personal information from iPad 3G users on AT&T. Spitler was one of the men responsible for writing the iPad 3G Account Slurper that parsed the SIM card numbers of AT&T iPad 3G owners and used them to retrieve email addresses from the carrier's website.
The men, Daniel Spitler and Andrew Auernheimer, were part of the hacker group that ended up grabbing over 100,000 records. Spitler pleaded guilty to the two felony charges and, as part of his plea agreement, could see his potential sentence reduced from a maximum of 10 years to as little as 12- to 18-months.
