    It is Patriot Act related, and it is not just Apple phones.. but the Apple phones are the easiest to hack. Not long ago local police in a US city were hacking iPhones at street corners while cars were waiting for the red light to change.

    Hackers claim proof the FBI is tracking Apple mobile devices - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Tech

    The above, is a quote from the hackers and has not been proven. The data files however are available for download. It looks legitimate, at least on the surface.

    Do you think this is a violation of our rights? Is our government overstepping in order to protect us?
    I would have assumed it is a truism. Name any information the government could possible obtain that it won't?

    To the hackers - DUH! That said, they (the FBI) will continue to gather all the info and ways to get into mibile devices that they can. Doesn't mean they're using them for peeks now, just means they have the info ready should they ever go for a warrant.

    Wireless signals are not difficult to grab, and anyone who expects privacy when using a mobile device is seriously deluded. Heck, we never expected privacy from the old landline system (everyone thought AT&T was listening - because they were).

    If we want privacy in communications that travel over the public space we'll have to roll out a privacy amendment to the Constitution. As it is, not such beast exists (though the SCOTUS has done their best to stretch what isn't there).

    Yeah, but it was a stretch by the SCOTUS to create something that did not exist in the Constitution. That aside, not even the same stretch would include electronic communications travelling over public space. You know how we caught Benedict Arnold don't you? We intercepted and read his mail without warrant.

    FBI Agent With 12 Million Apple Device IDs? WTF!

    In case anyone missed it Anonymous claims to have hacked FBI agent Christopher Stangl's computer which contained a spreadsheet with 12 million apple device ids. Along with the ids they also claim to have user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone numbers and addresses. As you can see CBS does their usual cracker jack job of reporting where they talk all about the hack with very little coverage of the most obvious question... Why the hell does an FBI agent have this information. The story is still in it's early stages so who knows how it will turn out but many of their past claims turned out to be true. It should be interesting to see what if any mainstream press coverage this gets in the future

    I agree, WTF..... WTF sort of security does the FBI computer system have that this guy was able to get through their firewall, security, etc... and into an agent's PC?

    Really? Your issue here is not the 12 million citizens who's privacy has been invaded but instead the privacy of an agent harboring said information? Now, I don't know how much truth there is to this (though evidence points in one direction) but how can you be ok with this much of an invasion of privacy? Is it another case of "If you're not doing anything wrong, what do you have to hide?"
