The FBI denies that AntiSec stole million of Apple’s portable ID of an agent
The FBI has come out against the leaking of a million identification codes for Apple iPhones and iPads, which AntiSec claims to have acquired the notebook of a federal agent, as we had yesterday Cony here.
“The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that a laptop FBI has been compromised and that the identification codes of Apple users were exposed. At this time there is no evidence to indicate that an FBI laptop has been compromised or that the FBI has sought or obtained these Data (ID) “.
To put more emphasis on the negative on the alleged violation of any federal agent laptop, via a tweet the FBI press office stressed:
“On the information outlined that one of our laptops was hacked, we clarify that we have not had information. Conclusion: It is totally false “.
So, with the case and everything. It is noteworthy that both insist on denying the attack on one of their laptops, but there are so insistent deny when they had so much information to users …
And is that the way I see it really disturbing in this case, regardless of whether or not the filtered data is that of being truly AntiSec version not only confirmed that federal agents would be tracking millions of users IOS (which really do not surprise me at all), but also that agents are stupid and so are sensitive data of millions of people on their laptops as well as if the photos of the weekend with friends in the beach concerned.
