Predictably, FBI denies involvement in UDID scare

If you’ve been anywhere near an electrical outlet today, you already know about the latest privacy scare reportedly involving the hacking group AntiSec publishing a million UDIDs they allegedly lifted from a laptop belonging to an FBI agent. It’s been all over the news and concerned citizens jumped to the rescue.

Well, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, also known under the widely popular FBI moniker, issued a public statement related to the scandal. No, the Bureau absolutely had nothing to do with collecting Apple UDIDs. Its agent wasn’t carrying around a file with a whopping twelve million device identifiers, thanks for your question. And of course they refuted the story and denied any wrongdoing. Sometimes, it’s easier to believe in God than to trust the Government, isn’t it?

Arik Hesseldahl of AllThingsD has this statement from the Bureau:

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 took to Twitter to call the story “totally false” and claim they “never had info in question”.

So, if AntiSec didn’t obtain the file with UDIDs from the FBI, how did the group got hold of it then?

Could the Government be telling the truth in asserting that AntiSec hackers lied about list of device identifiers?

But lets leave that! AntiSec made the whole thing up to get some free press.

The top American law enforcement agency is not creating a list of iPhone, iPod and iPad owners for purposes unknown.

Soooo, what do you think about the FBI’s statement?

  19. Predatory slowly remind the NFL, they are an elite team of elite QB Joe Flacco. Baltimore burned a 23-16 victory over Brown. Yes, rookie Brandon – Wyden looks decent, to 320 yards. The Ravens defensive answer, they had to. The offensive, Baltimore was proved to be a force, the President may not be able to keep up. If Joe – Flacco is not connected to Torrey Smith or safety barrier Bor, he handed the ball to Ray Rice. Dean stopped crow it?
