Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Federal officials including Paul J. Fishman, U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey and Michael B. Ward, a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, will speak at a press conference today in Newark, New Jersey, to announce criminal charges in connection with an alleged hack of AT&T Inc.’s servers.

The alleged hack involves the theft of e-mail addresses and other personal information belonging to approximately 120,000 Apple iPad users who accessed the Internet via AT&T’s 3G network, according to the announcement from Rebekah Carmichael, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Newark.

An AT&T spokesman, Mark Siegel, directed queries to the U.S. attorney’s office. Natalie Harrison, an Apple spokeswoman, wasn’t immediately available to comment before the start of regular business hours.
