Police in Cangnan county, China have busted a large iPhone data theft operation in which Apple employees used the company's internal system to collect the personal data of users for sale on the black market.

Twenty two people have been arrested out of which twenty worked for Apple or companies Apple outsources to.

The employees illegally used Apple's internal system to acquire the Apple ID, name, phone number, and other data of customers. The information was then sold for between 10 yuan ($1.46) and 180 yuan ($26.27) each. The total money involved has initially been estimated at over 50 million yuan ($7.3 million).

A new Chinese law that took effect June 1st makes acquisition, sale, or provision of 50 or more pieces of information pertaining to personal whereabouts, communication content, credit and property a crime. For those who work in financial, telecommunications and medical care sectors, 25 pieces of information leaked is considered a crime if leaked for personal benefit.

Notably, under the new law, Apple could face investigation and possibly fines if their systems have inadequate protections against a leak.

Had to be China... What Apple needs to do is show in a rather extreme way what happens when employees mess with security so others about to give it a shot have a hard time before going for broke.
