Ibrahim Baliç Likely Wasn’t Behind the Apple Developer Breach

The Guardian’s Charles Arthur plays sleuth, and convincingly finds Baliç’s alleged hacking video completely bunk:

Graham Cluley, an independent security consultant, commented: “Many of the names and email addresses either don’t look like they would belong to Apple developers, or appear to have left no footprints anywhere else on the net.” Of the set of 10 emails which appeared in the video, he said: “It’s almost as though these are long-discarded ghost email addresses from years ago or have been used by Balic in his video for reasons best known to himself.”
