AntiSec publishes UDIDs 1 million Apple stolen the FBI

AntiSec publishes UDIDs 1 million Apple stolen the FBI

Joining Security and members, known as , have posted a few hours ago to one million Apple UDIDs , unique identifiers of devices in the company. Along with this, claim to have over 12 million user IDs with their names, addresses, device names or phone numbers. All thanks to an attack with the fbi seeking to show that the government is spying on its citizens.

According to the statement, AntiSec explains that:

During the second week of March 2012, a Dell Vostro, used by Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl FBI team on Internet, was brought out through a vulnerability in Java.

During the gap, some files were downloaded from the desktop folder under the name “NCFTA: IOS: devices_intel.csv”, which turned out to be a list of over 12 million including UDIDs Apple IDs, user names, names devices, notification tokens, postal codes, telephone numbers, addresses …

All kinds of personal information concerning individuals, a complete list. No other type of file in the same folder mentions this list or its purpose.

The group suggests that this million UDIDs revealing is that the FBI is using the information to track citizens.

While unverified, the group speculates that the file itself can hide NCFTA renamed stands for National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance:

A conduit between private industry and the right to oversight by federal agencies.

In this case we are talking about a service between companies and government we report on user data. As I say, all this has to be confirmed, but if true the file found at least the FBI would have kept the personal data of 12 million users.
