One of the researchers connected to last week's iPad security breach has been arrested following a police raid.
The FBI conducted a search of the home of Andrew 'Escher' Auernheimer, a member of the Goatse Security group. The 24 year-old was arrested for possession of drugs, including cocaine, LSD and ecstasy.
The reason for the raid was not disclosed, but Goatse Security had been under FBI investigation in recent days.
The investigation stems from a Goatse Security report about a flaw in the AT&T web site which could allow an attacker to run a PHP script and harvest ID numbers and email addresses of iPad customers.
Goatse Security claimed that it had gathered more than 114,000 accounts, including the email addresses of numerous state and government officials.
AT&T has since claimed that the incident was the work of "malicious hackers", while Goatse Security has countered that it was protecting users from a potential criminal attack.
Goatse Security noted that AT&T had been given time to address the issue before it was publically reported.
Auernheimer had been speaking for the company on the issue, and had written Goatse's official response to AT&T's claims.
