Tracking Down the UDID Breach Source

An interesting upate to the UDID leak via John Gruber.

David Schuetz:

I’d heard about the alleged FBI/Apple UDID leak shortly after arriving at work last Tuesday morning, and immediately downloaded and began reviewing the data. Less than an hour later, I’d surmised that comparing apps across multiple devices might help narrow down the source.

Good to see that simple old research and analytics are still practised in the field. Another thing I like is the fact that David is not informing the mainstream media himself. Instead, the company that breached the UDID’s initiates that. I still don’t understand why that is.

Kuddos to David!
