The FBI on Tuesday disputed reports that it possessed a database with personal information on millions of Apple devices.

It also said there’s no evidence that an FBI laptop was compromised.

“The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs (unique identification numbers) was exposed,” the agency responded. “At this time, there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.”

A group that calls itself AntiSec said the proof is online, where it posted more than 12 million downloadable UDIDs.

Partner group, Anonymous, has been linked to other high-profile computer attacks targeting the FBI and CIA.

It’s hard to imagine a team with a 34-3 record throwing games, right?

Well, the FBI tracked San Diego State during its fantastic  2010-11 season, unbeknownst to coaches, players and school officials, CBS Sports reports.

The FBI cleared the university of wrongdoing.

The investigation began after one of the 10 men tied to the University of San Diego case was found to have contacted five San Diego State players in the fall of 2010, according to CBS. Apparently, the FBI then thought it should probably look at San Diego State just in case.

But the FBI couldn’t find evidence that any players tried to throw a game.

Former President Ronald Reagan exploited his relationship with the FBI  and J. Edgar Hoover as an informant to get the agency to provide information on  his children Michael and Maureen and to obtain information unavailable to the public, LA Observer reports.

While president of the Screen Actors Guild in the 1940s and ’50s, Reagan cooperated with the FBI.

According to the book, Reagan asked the FBI to conduct investigations of family members when he became suspicious of people around them.

Some members of Congress are questioning the legality of Homeland Security seizing domains and taking down URLs accused of copyright infringement, CNET reports.

Among the concerns are that Homeland Security is “seizing the domain names of websites whose actions and content are presumed to be lawful, protected speech,” some Congress members said in a letter to the U.S. Attorney General.

Since 2010, nearly 700 domain names have been seized under “Operation In Our Sites,” launched in 2010, according to CNET.

More than a year ago, the government removed a hip-hop Web site, saying Dajaz1 linked to copyrighted songs.

By Steve Neavling

The hacker group Anonymous announced it has stolen information from an FBI laptop computer that carried information on more than 1 million iPhone and iPad users, Forbes reports.

While Forbes was unable to verify the authenticity of the data, writer Andy Greenberg said the information “does seem to be an enormous list of 40-character strings made up of numbers and letters A through F,” just like Apple’s unique device identifier numbers used to identify individual users of iPhone and iPads.

Also included in that information are user names, cellphone numbers, addresses, texts and other personal information, according to Forbes.

It could mean Apple is supplying the data, that the FBI is getting the information on its own or something else entirely, according to technology news site, Gizmodo.

Whatever the case, the FBI will have a lot of questions to answer, Forbes reported.
