Today, the management of a small publishing company Blue Toad from Florida (USA) made a statement about the leakage of data of users of devices on the iOS platform, published in early September by hackers from AntiSec, reports NBC News.
Blue Toad CEO Paul Dehart told a television channel that the data was stolen from the company's servers two weeks ago. According to Paul Dehart, after a comparison, there was almost a 100 percent similarity between the publicly available files and the information that was stored in the company. To be precise, the similarity was 98%. He noted that as soon as the information leak was discovered and the company's involvement in this story was confirmed, they immediately turned to law enforcement agencies.
Apple confirmed that Blue Toad, as an application developer, had access to the UDID database. But the developer could not know any personal information about the owners of iOS devices.
Despite the official press statement, it is still not clear how the UDID data ended up on the laptop of the FBI employee.
Recall that a group of hackers AntiSec at the beginning of this month announced the theft from the FBI computer about 12 million unique identifiers of iOS devices. FBI officials called the statement "false."
