WASHINGTON — The creators of the iPad — the mini computer that seems to be today’s hot item in the gadget world — may be getting a little more attention then they want.

This time it’s from the FBI.

The FBI on Thursday said it was investigating a security breach of AT&T’s wireless network, the Washington Post reported. The problem: email addresses and network numbers of iPad users were exposed.

The website Gawker reported that some high-level government officials, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, were among those affected.

The Post reported that FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said in a e-mail: “The FBI is aware of these possible computer intrusions and is looking into it.”
