Anonymous Leaks Apple UDIDs Following Alleged Hack of FBI
UPDATE --The Antisec arm of hacktivist group Anonymous published one million unique device identifier numbers, or UDIDs, for Apple devices, including iPhones and iPads, on Monday night. The group alleges the slew of information was swiped from a laptop belonging to the FBI earlier this year.
In a post on Pastebin, Anonymous maintains that the list of UDIDs originally contained information on 12,000,000 devices but later trimmed it down to 1,000,001 and stripped personal data like full names, cell numbers, addresses and ZIP codes from the file.
Each UDID is followed by what Anonymous claims is a Push Notification Service DevToken, along with the device's name and type associated with the UDID.
According to the Pastebin post, the group unearthed the UDIDs after compromising the laptop of an FBI agent in March and exploiting the same AtomicReferenceArray hole the Flashback Trojan used earlier this year in Java. A file, "NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv," then yielded a list of 12,367,232 UDIDs.
The FBI denied that the bureau ever had the data or that Anonymous was able to compromise an agent's laptop.
