  • FBI Responds to Antisec Leaking Over One Million Apple UDIDs

    Earlier today, ModMyi reported that a group of hackers known as Antisec had leaked to the public over one million out of twelve million stolen UDIDs that were supposedly taken from an FBI agentís own compromised laptop computer using a Java vulnerability. The epic leak of personal information was of large-scale and has many people worried about their security.

    In turn, the FBI has personally responded to the catastrophe, stating that they are aware of what has happened, but deny that the information was stolen from that of an FBI agentís computer. Predictably so, the FBI has denied the involvement with the UDIDs. The FBI is notorious for keeping secrets of their own to complete their own undercover business, so credibility might be far from earned in their statement:

    Notably humorous and somewhat sketchy in their response is that they have no evidence ďat this point in timeĒ that the computer with the stolen information was from that of an FBI agent, but that open-ended statement leaves wiggle room for them to amend the statement later on when the truth is finally revealed. People still wish to know why there was potentially an FBI agent running around with over twelve million UDIDs on his laptop computer. Even more interestingly, if it was not an FBI agent, where did some other average Joe get this information from?

    The hacker group continues to stir up trouble on Twitter and from wherever else they can, saying that they still have several more files (over 3 terabytes) to unravel. Brace yourself for another possible smack in the face from Antisec, as they appear to be having a lot of fun with this.
