Script kiddies find any kind of security flaw using their protocols (made by other people), break in, steal your information, then try to blame it on the 'evil government'.

Even if it happened the way it is now being reported (which I think is questionable) you guys seem to be missing the point... ANY business or government agent that has millions of sensitive personal records should take the time to secure their computer against 'pitiful basement dwelling loser script kiddies'. After all, if losers like that can 'break in', pretty much anyone can.
In fact, I would consider Blue Toad more liable for the breach of security than the script kiddies. The sad part is that there are millions of similar companies out there with our records in just as insecure systems. Blue Toad sounds like they are whining that their unsecured WiFi was 'stolen' and someone else downloaded a movie.
There is also the question of why Blue Toad had the UDIDs at all. From what the article said, they did not deal with the end users... they dealt with publishers. So why was Blue Toad collecting the data of the end users?

They do things like make their net handle the name of a loser political candidate, while attacking the "other guy's" loser candidate because they know that the are so on the "winning team".

P.S. Who cares where the data came from? Someone is engaging in a massive surveillance effort against iOS users, and if anyone is naive enough to believe that the 3-letter spook agencies don't already have all this information and so much more, I have a bridge to sell you. Calling people names doesn't change that fact. It's a logical fallacy called the ad hominem attack. Nice try though, mittens.
