The FBI says it is investigating a data breach at AT&T that exposed the e-mail addresses of more than 114,000 owners of the Apple iPad, including government officials.

The agency said Thursday it is looking into "the potential cyber threat" from the breach.

AT&T said it has no comment. It acknowledged Wednesday that it had exposed the e-mail addresses through a Web site, and had closed the breach.

The vulnerability only affected iPad users who signed up for AT&T's "3G" wireless Internet service.
