This day has certainly been crazy, it all started off with a privacy breach. The Antisec hackers claimed to have leaked out 1 million of the 12 million iOS UDIDs they hacked from the FBI. That wasn’t all either, the president of the United States (Barack Obama) allegedly had his UDID on the leaked list, sparking a small controversy. The story has many more juicy details, but you have to click here to learn more.
Now just during these past 30 minutes AllThingsD has learned the FBI denied allegations that Antisec hacked them earlier this year:
“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.”
Remember, we are talking the FBI. They are going to strive for security and deny any form of wrongdoing. Any such report can bring the FBI’s reputation down quite quickly.
If these UDIDs didn’t come from the FBI, where did they come from? Sounds like Antisec is trying to cause trouble. best prices for laptop computers
