AntiSec Leaks 1 Million Apple Device IDs Obtained During FBI Breach

Antisec has released 1 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs), claiming that it obtained them after breaching the FBI's servers. It also claims to have over 12 million IDs in total, along with user names, device names, cell phone numbers and addresses to go with them.

In a statement Antisec explains:

During the second week of March 2012, a Dell Vostro notebook, used by Supervisor Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl from FBI Regional Cyber Action Team and New York FBI Office Evidence Response Team was breached using the AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability on Java, during the shell session some files were downloaded from his Desktop folder one of them with the name of "NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv" turned to be a list of 12,367,232 Apple iOS devices including Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, mobile phone numbers, addresses, etc. the personal details fields referring to people appears many times empty leaving the whole list incompleted on many parts. no other file on the same folder makes mention about this list or its purpose.

Antisec suggests that the FBI is using the information to track citizens. It's not clear, of course, whether any of these claims are true -- but if they are, the NCFTA acronym in Antisec's file name could likely stand for National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance, which "functions as a conduit between private industry and law enforcement." If that's the case, it could mean Apple is feeding the FBI user data though the NCTFA, that the FBI is mining its own data... or something else entirely. [AntiSec via The Next Web]



    Can't till these tossed get caught and spend 10 years getting pounded by a guy named Steve.

    So for them to prove a point, my iOS details might be public? These guys are worse than any law enforcement agency on the planet.

      You allowed you details to be published, if you had a problem with it why did you not do something earlier. Its been no secrete that the gov have you information, you should have done something earlier.

      You never asked the FBI or Anon not the share the information you gave them so you have no right to complain.

      Correct. It takes extreme measures for big companies to hear the public's voices.

      LOL? And you would rather a Law Enforcment Agency to have those details? 12.3 million- Yeah that's reasonable even for "training" purposes.

      They only released the UDIDs, not the rest of the details that go with them.

    On the Desktop, of all places.
    Not on an encrypted drive or deep in his documents, but on the desktop.

    The desktop should only have shortcuts and the recycling bin.

    Good luck apple fanboy. FBI is using you to spy on your country and they thank you for feeding them information. So either way whether apple product is unsecured or they feed FBI with your data. you are still in loss position.

    Apple are beyond evil

    If you think that's bad, the NSA contains all that plus everything else. They're building the NSA Utah Data Base Center which will store just about every single piece of data being transmitted across the nation, and possibly many parts of the world as well. They're bigger than the CIA & FBI combined........
