Earlier this morning, we reported that the AntiSec hacker group claimed to have stolen personal information of Apple device owners from an FBI agent’s notebook – amounting to 12 million or so Device IDs, while allegedly leaking out a million of those as proof. It is now the FBI’s turn to refute such allegations, where FBI officials claim that the bureau never requested for and has never been in possession of the database that was hacked. I guess it is a matter of words now, and an issue of public perception. Who do you think is the better poker player here, and whose bluff do you call?
FBI officials did, however, say that they are unable to verify the validity of the data which AntiSec released, and instead issued a warning to computer users to be more vigilant and careful whenever clicking on links as they might end up clicking on malicious links that lead to malware being installed on your machine.
