Millions of Apple IDs hacked

This morning, we woke to news that a hacker group had leaked a million Apple IDs.

This final note today, which as it happens comes the same day that Apple sent out invites for what's expected to be the unveiling of the iPhone 5; it's set for a week from tomorrow.

This morning though, we woke to news that a hacker group had leaked a million Apple IDs. IDs that in some cases contained cell phone numbers and other stuff you just don't want out there in public. It's part of a haul of 12 million IDs the group says it could have published.

So yeah...iPhone 5 in a week.
