Re: 1 million Ipad & Iphone records stolen from feds & posted

Here is the second finger..

On Twitter, the FBI was even more blunt:

Statement soon on reports that one of our laptops with personal info was hacked. We never had info in question. Bottom Line: TOTALLY FALSE

Of course, tinfoil-hatters will remind the world “they would say that, wouldn’t they?”, but it’s now over to AntiSec to back its claim.

Meanwhile, trawling the database of UUIDs, Cultofmac is making the extraordinary and probably unprovable claim that President Obama's UUID is among those on the list leaked by AntiSec.

That claim comes from a PasteHTML search on the UUIDs (which page, by the way, allows anyone to check if their UUID was leaked). Exactly how the search conclusively ties the named device to the Leader of the Free World isn't exactly clear to El Reg.

FBI Says Laptop Wasn’t Hacked; Never Possessed File of Apple Device IDs

quote:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is refuting a statement made by members of AntiSec this weekend that they hacked the laptop of an FBI special agent and stole a file containing 12 million Apple device IDs and associated personal information.

The FBI also said it did not possess a file containing the data the hackers said they stole.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, the FBI said, “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.”

We already woke the boys up earlier and they gave a statement.

said by FBI article :

Looks like carefully chosen wording. Having watched a few LEO interviews on TV and elsewhere, a suspect will say "there;s no proof I did it"

Apple issues its own carefully worded statement;

In a statement delivered to AllThings's John Paczkowski by Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris, the company explained that it wasn’t the source of any UDIDs the FBI may have been stockpiling.


That still leaves Apple itself as a possible source, just not through the FBI;

Yet the stuff is out there.

*poof* it appears magically from no source.

Well really I hardly expect the FBI to issue a press statement.

"Our bad. You caught us. Yeah we've been hacking into iPhones for years. We promise not to do it again."

Oh and the NSA Bob should also issue a statement.

"Yeah we really do monitor all your electronic communications. Take it Bitches!"

Oh, and while I'm waiting for those two press releases I want my $5 (or whatever the going rate is) from the Tooth Fairy.
