Despite a claim made by hacking group AntiSec, which said in a tweet that they compromised 12 million Apple iOS Unique Device IDs (UDIDs) and personal information from a FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) laptop. The original file contained 12 million IDs, including personal information, but they released only 1 million (leaving out the personal data) in an encrypted file published on pastebin.com.

Things the file contained are:

  • Unique Device Identifiers (UDID)
  • User names
  • Names Of Devices
  • Types Of Devices
  • Apple Push Notification
  • Service Tokens
  • ZIP Codes
  • Cellphone Numbers
  • Addresses

The FBI is refuting a statement made by members of AntiSec this weekend that they hacked the laptop of an FBI special agent and stole a file containing 12 million Apple device IDs and associated personal information. The FBI has said there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.

The concern of most people is if the FBI did not collect this data. Then where did the cache of UDID’s come from? How were they collected? Who else had access to them? What other information does the anonymous source have?
