The file name has ncfta in it.
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.
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)

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.
