Source Of Apple Device IDs Revealed: NBC


You might recall that a ton of device IDs linked to Apple devices that threaten iDevice users everywhere. The FBI denied that they were the source for this leak. And it turns out that they were telling the truth. NBC has the source identified:

Paul DeHart, CEO of the Blue Toad publishing company, told NBC News that technicians at his firm downloaded the data released by Anonymous and compared it to the company’s own database. The analysis found a 98 percent correlation between the two datasets.

“That’s 100 percent confidence level, it’s our data,” DeHart said. “As soon as we found out we were involved and victimized, we approached the appropriate law enforcement officials, and we began to take steps to come forward, clear the record and take responsibility for this.”

At least the company behind this is taking responsibility for this. But it also really goes to the heart of what Antisec said last week. Whatever. It’s still a clear and present danger to iDevice users out there. That’s something that still needs to be addressed.
