B.b.b.but if your not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about!


I was obviously being sarcastic. What i want to know is why those names are in anybodies name except Apple? There is a serious sickness going on in this country with regards to a citizens private life.

I wonder if this is related

www.ncfta.net...

The file name has ncfta in it.


I wonder why no-one picked this up. It´s definitely related, and it would be really disturbing if this data originally came from the NCFTA, as the filename at least suggests.

From their "About the NCFTA" section:


The NCFTA, a non-profit corporation, evolved from one of the nation’s first High Tech Task Forces and, since 1997, has established an expansive alliance between subject matter experts (SMEs) in the public and private sectors (more than 500 worldwide) with the goal of addressing complex and often internationally-spawned cyber crimes. These SMEs, from industry, academia and government, each bring specific talents and experiences to the partnership. Through a steady cycling of such cross-sector national and international resources, both embedded at the NCFTA and through initiative-specific intelligence channels, the NCFTA is well positioned to adapt and regularly reinvent itself to better address today’s evolving threat landscape.


Reading through the veil of corporate buzzwords it comes down to a non-profit organisation, specialising in providing services related to solving/tracking cyber-related crime; an alliance of worldwide experts from the private and public sectors, as well as governments.


The primary objectives of this public/private alliance are to:
•Identify, mitigate, and neutralize cyber crime threats
•Rapidly build intelligence to the actionable level so that the threat can be: ◦Further located/identified (who all are involved and where they are located)
◦Mitigated through timely enhancement of security practices/procedures
◦Effectively neutralized through:
■Proactive law enforcement engagement (domestically & internationally)
− This can/may include both criminal and civil avenues in coordination with appropriate authorities

■Implementation of interim technology solutions (i.e. null-routing of botnet traffic or similar interdiction action via TLD’s or ICANN)


(Emphasis added by me)

From this I conclude that they do work with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and it may very well be that they are the ones who provided the data in cvs format to the agent.

It´s no surprise to me really, but we are being spied on massively!

Yeah, it's shocking, but it shouldn't be, considering the revelations about trapwire and all the NSA whistleblowers coming forward now. I checked my UDID and I'm not on the 1 mil list antisec dropped yesterday, but that doesn't mean I'm not one of the 11 mil they're sitting on. I called apple yesterday when this broke, and the reps(and one supervisor) I spoke to were just hearing of it. They all have apple products of their own, and were just as angry as I was. I don't know if someone at apple coughed this data up, or if the FBI got it from a 3rd party or what, but if apple mgmt willingly did this, I'm done with 'em. They can shove that new iPhone and all things apple up their ass...

I go with neither.

When I was a kid, we used phones to... guess what... make phone calls... and we liked it!


I'm just sticking with just a plain old phone, no other fancy bells and whistles.

iPhones are great. Much better than the Windows phones, etc. Honestly I don't give a # if they have my apple ID...I'm not doing anything wrong so the gov't can spy on me all they want.

FBI denies AntiSec's Apple UDID database claims



www.h-online.com...


Yesterday's claim by AntiSec, part of the hactivist collective Anonymous, that it had obtained 12 million UDIDs (Unique Device IDs) for Apple iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices while hacking an FBI agent's laptop, has been denied by the FBI. The group had released a million UDIDs, push notification tokens, device names and types as evidence that they had the information.

But the law enforcement agency tweeted: "We never had info in question" and said that the story was "TOTALLY FALSE". In a further statement, the agency said:

The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs was exposed. At this time, there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.


Never happened.... or... at least that is the official take on the matter.... no word on the FBI agent named in the tale.

EDIT TO ADD: another link allthingsd.com...

AND another: www.cnn.com...

Well, actually, they aren´t denying it at all. The FBI is trolling us by saying there is no evidence this ever happened and there is no evidence the FBI ever sought or obtained that data.

Saying there´s no evidence for something is completely different than claiming it didn´t happen...


"The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs (unique device IDs) was exposed," according to an FBI spokesperson. "At this time there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data."
