Anonymous released more than 1 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers
Hacking group Anonymous claims to have released a set of more than 1 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs) obtained from breaching the FBI.
The group indicated that the action was part of is AntiSec (Anti Security) campaign to steal and leak classified government and company information to expose security flaws.
I guess a "lulz" would be in/approriate? The IDs were allegedly taken from just one agent's laptop (password was password, I assume).
Anonymous are campaigning against government surveillance of its law-abiding citizens (guilty until proven innocent is the new motto, I'm told).
It's worth noting that "Anonymous" also leaked the Stratfor emails last year - only: they didn't. It seems. The Stratfor hack was apparently a job organised by Mr Monsegur - a hacker arrested and 'turned' by the FBI (his screen name was "Sabu")
Either way: Bad news for 12 million Apple ID holders -
Anonymous claims to have garnered over 12 million UDIDs, as well as associated personal information such as user names, device names, mobile phone numbers and addresses, according to US reports.
