    Hackers Obtain Millions of Apple Users' Information From FBI Laptop

    So not only do all Apple products have a unique ID that personally identifies the user, but the FBI also has this information, and one single FBI agent has the personal information of over 12 million people on his laptop. And on top of that this agent from the "Cyber Action Team" gets his laptop hacked through a known vulnerability. Unbelievable.

    How ironic that it was a PC that was hacked to get all of this Apple data.

    Why does the FBI have all of that data?

    Second, why is all of this data on a single agents laptop?

    1. Because they want it.

    2. I'm sorry that's classified.

    The agent was attempting to track down his long lost sister who'd disappeared when she was a child. He was hoping that if she was still alive, that she might have an Ipod.

    I believe.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    If you check your device go to a place like
    How To Check To See If Your iPhone Or iPad UDID Has Been Leaked - Forbes
    to see if yours is one of the released ID's. You can figure out how to find your ID at What's my UDID?
    When you check your ID DO NOT put in the entire thing. Use only the first 10 digits or so.

    Everyone is now guilty until proven innocent. They're just trying to prove our innocence. Awfully sweet of them if you ask me.
