AntiSec leaks 1.000.000 UDIDs from the FBI

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, cellphone 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.

As you read, a AntiSec took a .csv file from a FBI laptop, which contains over 12 millions of Apple devices UDIDs using a Java’s vulnerability. This contains personal informations such as city, address and cellphones numbers and tokens for the push notifications.

Though, only 1 million of these were leaked and published on the web. If you want to check if your device’s UDID was leaked, simply head to the source link (at the end of the post) and paste it.

How do I find my UDID?

To find your UDID, connect your device to iTunes, click on its name on the right bar and click on the serial number. It’ll appear another code, hit Cmd+C and then paste it on the mentioned webpage.

Il gruppo di hacker AntiSec ha pubblicato una lista di ben 1.000.000 UDID relativi ai dispositivi Apple da un file .csv rubato da un computer della FBI, contenente informazioni personali come città, indirizzo e numeri di cellulare. Tuttavia di questi solo un milione sono stati resi pubblici sul web. per controllare se il vostro dispositivo è stato registrato, andate semplicemente su questo indirizzo e incollate l’UDID del dispositivo.

Per trovarlo, andate su iTunes, cliccate sul vostro dispositivo nella barra laterale e cliccate sul numero di serie. Ne apparirà un’altro che corrisponde all’UDID. Copiatelo quindi con Cmd+C e incollatelo sulla pagina suddetta.
