NewImageThe Federal Bureau of Investigation has issued a denial of responsibility regarding the leak of more than 1,000,000 iOS UDID numbers last night.

In a statement issued in the past hour:

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.

The statement is not a blanket denial that the information did not come from the FBI, but instead says there "is no evidence" that a laptop was compromised or that the FBI sought or obtained the UDIDs.

Its kinda sad when you have the tendency to believe the hackers over the investigators.

Not knowing you've been compromised is probably worse than being compromised in the first place.

Obamacare is only the start, Ive read just recently some schools are trying to force students now to be implanted with the RFID chip, there is a court battle going on. Obamacare will mandate RFID chip implants to all. By 2015 the government (doesnt matter right or left) will mandate all citizens to rfid implant. People will be scanned wherever they go with all info available to big brother. Pleople who opt out will not have access to health, banks, gov buildings, airplanes etc..

Sweet!

Does the RFID chip have bluetooth functionality so that it can wirelessly sync with my iPhone for hands free operation while driving?
