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.

Would you believe an official denial made by a spying agency? Heck, these days it's even hard to believe an official denial made by a (once) respected athlete that defeated cancer and went on to win seven Tour de France titles.

Official denials are the worst, they are almost certain false.

(The FBI isn't a spying organization, but an investigating one (well, it supposed to be)).
