An Orlando, Fla., company said Monday that it – not the FBI – was the source of a file hackers posted online last week that contained 1 million identification numbers for Apple mobile devices.
The company, BlueToad, which works with thousands of publishers to translate printed content into digital and mobile formats, said hackers had breached its systems more than a week ago and stolen the file. A few days after the file appeared online, the company realized it matched the stolen information, said Paul DeHart, BlueToad’s chief executive.
That version of events differs sharply from that put forth by the hackers last week. They claimed to have stolen the file from the laptop of an FBI agent.
