AllThingsD reports that the FBI denied being the source of the 12 million leaked Apple iOS device UDIDs.
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.
AntiSec claimed this morning to have obtained 12 million device IDs, along with a slew of personal Apple user information, via files stored on an FBI laptop. The only question left: Where did AntiSec get this information if it did not come from the FBI?
The FBI Press Office also issued a tweet on the matter:
Statement soon on reports that one of our laptops with personal info was hacked. We never had info in question. Bottom Line: TOTALLY FALSE
