Apple's Device IDs Called a Threat to Privacy

We know what you've been up to with your iPad

Today, a group known as Antisec released a collection of one million UDIDs—serial numbers associated with Apple mobile devices, such as iPhones and iPads—which they claim came from a trove of 12 million UDIDs pilfered from an FBI agent's laptop.

The FBI has issued a statement denying that an agency device was compromised or that "the FBI either sought or obtained the information." Clearly, there are a lot of open questions, and few solid facts relating to this alleged breach.
