FBI State AntiSec’s Leaked Apple Device UDID Story Is “Totally False,” Oh Really?
Today is a big day in the technology scene because Apple announced on September 12th it will be holding a media event to unveil the next-generation iPhone. Yet another surprise that shocked people today was that the hacking organization AntiSec leaked over 1 million Apple Device UDIDs from an FBI laptop. The 1 million UDIDs they did leak was only 1/12 of the total they have in their possession. According to AntiSec the FBI were using these UDIDs to track iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users in the United States.
The FBI remained pretty quiet about the massive security breach of one of their employees laptops, but thanks to AllThingsD, we finally have a statement.
The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs was exposed. At this time there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.
The FBI Press Office further announced over Twitter that “we never had info in question,” and that the report is “totally false.” Phew well that’s good to know, I am glad to know the AntiSec faked where 1 million UDIDs came from and probably made up the story just for the spotlight. Wait a minute? NOT! I sense that the FBI might not be telling the whole truth here, what about you?
