When asked about 12 million Apple device identification numbers that a hacker group stole from an FBI laptop, Apple denied providing any such list to them. According to Apple, they have never provided any such information to FBI or any other group.
A spokeswoman from Apple, Trudy Muller said, “The FBI has not requested this information from Apple, nor have we provided it to the FBI or any organization”.
With this statement, the mystery surrounding this suspected list of UDIDs has been augmented than before. AntiSec is the hacker group that has stolen 12 million device IDs from an FBI agent’s computer. It is known to be linked with a Mysterious group. However, FBI is not ready to accept this.
To prove their statement, AntiSec this week has even uploaded 1 million of the alleged ID numbers on an online website. In this regard, Apple has once again told to the Los Angeles Times that in coming times, these UDIDs will be of no use. They are very soon introducing iOS 6 which will work with a new set of APIs. Following this, UDIDs will no longer be used. In fact these will be banned soon.
Security experts are guessing app developers to be behind this leak, because they are often provided with UDIDs to allow users access the long app list.
