re: AntiSec Hackers Post 1 Million Apple Device IDs
I have to agree with N5RMJ that I have also not heard of any actual matches, but nonetheless it still would be quite the breach . It makes sense that the FBI would deny the claim, seeing as how it would bring the question of how the laptop was accessed. The irony that it was the supervisor of the FBI's Regional Cyber ActionTeam did bring a chuckle out of me. That would suck on the other hand if your information was released out there without your consent.

re: AntiSec Hackers Post 1 Million Apple Device IDs
You know, lots of folks name their wireless networks "FBI's iPhone," "FBI van#2," and "FBI Surveillance." Those are some of the most common SSIDs in use in the USA. The idea that the FBI would actually use something like that (or even broadcast an SSID, for that matter) is rather silly.

See http://f3v3r.com/2012/01/19/na...

I have not yet heard of any confirmed matches between the published list and real iOS devices so I am not convinced that this data breach is even real at this point.

It wouldn't surprise me if one were not an active collaborator with the other in an effort to keep an eye on the proletariat masses. The question is who is collaborating with whom?
