46342715 story Tool Reveals iPad and iPhone User Locations 36 Posted by timothy on Thursday May 09, 2013 @09:35AM from the cat's-away-mice-will-play dept. 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 Wi-Fi 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."
