Oopsie! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

Apple caught with their hand down -your- pants. Again.

Apple faced a major embarrassment on the eve of the launch of its new iPhone when hackers published a trove of sensitive information about 1m Apple devices online.

The hacker group AntiSec, an offshoot of the Anonymous and Lulzsec collectives which last year targeted Sony, News International and others in a high-profile wave of attacks, said it had obtained the database of Apple device-identifiers from an FBI agent's laptop. The FBI's long-running international investigation into Anonymous and its associates resulted in several arrests earlier this year.

FBI didn't have much to say about it. I guess they get embarrassed when you know they're watching.
