Apple This could be big - although just how big remains unclear. "There you have. 1,000,001 Apple Devices UDIDs linking to their users and their APNS tokens. The original file contained around 12,000,000 devices. We decided a million would be enough to release. We trimmed out other personal data as, full names, cell numbers, addresses, zipcodes, etc." How did AntiSec get this data (they claim)? From an FBI laptop. Why an FBI laptop would have a file with personal information on 12 million iOS users, we don't know - especially since 10000 of them are Dutch/Belgian, and last I checked, those do not fall under FBI jurisdiction. Did the FBI obtain it from an application developer, or from Apple itself? Then again - 12 million users? From a single iOS developer? I find that hard to believe.

Well, camping nearby some FBI offices with a cantenna most likely significantly increases chances of communicating with an FBI laptop...

Also, 1.5 GiB over a decent wifi isn't that much; plus maybe they set up the transfer in a way that a partial file will be saved, too. And pirated movies tend to have very recognizable names & extensions... (but I guess you might be used to the obfuscation done by iTunes? ;p ), FBI agents would never download and keep such, right? ;)
