The FBI AntiSec answered “no evidence of a laptop committed”
The fbi has issued an official statement refuting the statement by members of AntiSec where he claimed to have hacked the laptop of FBI special agent and theft of a file containing 12 million Apple device IDs with personal information associated.
The agency said they were unaware of possessing a file containing the data that the group claimed to have stolen. A statement released earlier today which read:
The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that a laptop FBI has been compromised and individuals on Apple UDIDs were exposed.
At this time there is no evidence that the FBI laptop has been compromised or that the FBI has sought or obtained such data.
A statement that left foot to doubt the existence of the laptop and why the FBI ended up declaring on Twitter that:
On the statement reports that one of our laptops with personal information was hacked, never had this information. Conclusion: It is totally false.
We’ll have to see if it’s true or not. According AntiSec, published and encrypted file contains 1 million UDIDs Appe devices, a portable file obtained from FBI Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl. In addition, the group claims to have in his possession more than 12 million IDs which includes users’ personal information.
A file that was under the title of “NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv.”. AntiSec says this information demonstrates that the FBI used this information to monitor and track users.
The truth is that while the FBI denies these statements, file title refers to the National Cyber Forensics acronyms and Training Alliance, a nonprofit organization created in 1997 by the FBI as a conduit between private industry and law order to help them share information and collaborate on cases.
Wired has tried to contact the NCFTA no response. Meanwhile, The Next Web has created a tool for users to check if your Apple UDID is among the data released by AntiSec.Tags: AntiSec, Apple, fbi
