"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 FBI said today that it does not know anything about a laptop that hackers say they compromised and that led them to millions of Apple iOS device user details, of which 1 million have been released on the Web.

"The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs was exposed," said an FBI spokesperson. "At this time there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data."

Although the agency says it can neither confirm nor deny that a compromise happened, that doesn't mean it didn't happen. And it doesn't speak to the issue that data of potentially millions of iOS devices has been leaked. CNET has verified the authenticity of some of the user account details that the hackers released.
