FBI Agent’s Laptop Hacked and Found to Contain Over 12 Million Apple User IDs

This is just lovely.  So apparently several hacker activist groups got into FBI agent Christopher Stangl’s laptop and found:

A list of 12,367,232 Apple iOS devices including Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone numbers, addresses, etc.

What makes this story even better is that Mr. Stangl was the guy who posted a video in 2009 imploring Computer Science majors to join the FBI.  Makes sense.  I guess you need a lot of people to keep tabs on the sheeple’s communications 24/7.  Move along folks…nothing to see here.  Your government loves you.  Now go get on food stamps, watch some football and shut up.

Forbes covered this story and you can read the article here.
