Today a former AT&T employee has admitted that he leaked insider information of Blackberry sales to investors. Alnoor Ebrahim, also leaked iPhone sales figures to traders.

“I provided insider information concerning AT&T’s sales of Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s (Research In Motion Ltd) BlackBerry products, as well as other handset set devices sold through AT&T distribution channels,” Ebrahim told U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in Manhattan.

Ebrahim has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and securities fraud. Ebrahim will be sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison, as a result of a plea agreement with Manhattan federal prosecutors.

“We took this matter very seriously and cooperated fully with the authorities,” said AT&T spokesman Marty Richtman. “The conduct alleged was clearly against our code of business conduct, and Mr. Ebrahim is no longer an AT&T employee.”
