Apple denies handing device identifiers to FBI
Apple US says it didn't hand over the 12 million unique device identifiers or UDIDs that the Antisec hackers claim to have lifted off an FBI agent's laptop.
Hackers claimed to have compomised the laptop of agent Christopher Stangl, who had a history of involvement with Anonymous and Lulzsec, the predecessor to Antisec.
Antisec posted more than a million UDIDs to the web, with some matching personal user information such as names, mobile phone numbers and physical addresses attached, leading to privacy concerns and suggestions that the FBI was tracking a large number of Apple customers. The FBI has denied that the laptop was compromised, or that it requested and obtained the UDIDs.
