Following on from yesterdayâ€™s sensational claims from AntiSec that it had managed to obtain millions of unique device identifiers for iOS devices (UDIDs) from the laptop of an FBI agent, Apple has told John Paczkowski at All Things D that it did not give the FBI the information. Hereâ€™s the full statement to All Things D from Appleâ€™s spokeswoman, Natalie Kerris:
As Paczkowski notes, the FBI has also denied the story, saying that it has no evidence whatsoever that an FBI laptop has been â€œcompromisedâ€ in this way, or that the FBI has been keeping, or wanting to keep, any such data. So, sighs of relief all round.
