It says the FBI never had the data, and the full set is “only” 2 million entries rather than the 12 million AntiSec claimed. 4 Comments 2012-09-11 10:42 pm Lennie I think the answer is some where in these links: http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2012/08/is_iphone_secur.html https://media.blackhat.com/bh-ad-11/Belenko/bh-ad-11-Belenko-iOS_Dat… I didn’t see the Blackhat talk, reading slides is always somewhat misleading but: “Passcode key computation utilizes new hardware key UID+” So my guess is, the iPhone uses encryption and the UDID is like a shared key between the iPhone, Apple and this company (I assume working for the FBI or other US-government agency). 2012-09-12 1:06 am Lorin If AntiSec’s claims are true then it should be no problem to release all 12 million ID codes. That way we know if this is FUD from our oh so honest Government or BS from AntiSec. 2012-09-12 1:49 am Alfman Lorin, You are right, but if these crackers don’t want us to know, then we’ll be hard pressed to uncover the facts. Just because BlueToad identified itself as a source doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the sole source of the leaks.

They knew the FBI didn’t provide the data yet they wanted us to believe it. They get their kicks off it like some crooks do. Not the crime but the attention. This makes them only scum sucking slim, not the do gooders they claim to be.
