Gemalto Denies Sim Cards Were Hacked by NSA

Samuel Gibbs, The Guardian:

The firm allegedly hacked by the NSA and GCHQ has stated that it cannot find any evidence that the US and UK security services breached and stole the encryption keys billions of Sim cards.

Good news if true. I can’t help but be a little skeptical, however. Snowden’s revelations have proven time and again to be borne out by the facts. What’s more, don’t we think Gemalto would have a huge incentive to lie and say they were never actually breached?
