FBI denies leak of Apple codes

The FBI says there is “no evidence” that a hacker group gained access to 12 million identifying codes for Apple devices via an FBI agent’s laptop.

AntiSec, a hacker group, posted a file on the internet on Monday that it said contained more than one million of Apple’s so-called UDID codes.

UDIDs are a 40-character string unique to each Apple device.

AntiSec said it gained the codes from the laptop of an FBI agent called Christopher Stangl.

Mr Stangl works in the bureau’s Regional Cyber Action Team, Wired Magazine reports.

AntiSec suggested that the 12 million codes were being used by the FBI to track the associated users.

Along with the posted file, the group said in a statement that it had only released one million IDs and had scrubbed identifying information, including full names, telephone numbers and addresses.
