Submission + - Tool reveals iPad and iPhone user locations (

mask.of.sanity writes: A researcher has found that Apple user locations can be potentially determined by tapping into Apple Maps and he has created a Python tool to make the process easier.

iSniff GPS accesses Apple's database of wireless access points, which is collected by iPhones and iPads that have GPS and wifi location services enabled.

Apple uses this 'crowd-sourced' data to run its location services, however the location database is not meant to be public.

You can download the tool via Giuthub.
