    Default FBI Responds to Antisec Leaking Over One Million Apple UDIDs


    Earlier today, ModMyi reported that a group of hackers known as Antisec had leaked to the public over one million out of twelve million stolen UDIDs that were supposedly taken from an FBI agent’s own compromised laptop computer using a Java vulnerability. The epic leak of personal information was of large-scale and has many people worried about their security.

    In turn, the FBI has personally responded to the catastrophe, stating that they are aware of what has happened, but deny that the information was stolen from that of an FBI agent’s computer. Predictably so, the FBI has denied the involvement with the UDIDs. The FBI is notorious for keeping secrets of their own to complete their own undercover business, so credibility might be far from earned in their statement:

    Quote Originally Posted by FBI Spokeswoman

    Notably humorous and somewhat sketchy in their response is that they have no evidence “at this point in time” that the computer with the stolen information was from that of an FBI agent, but that open-ended statement leaves wiggle room for them to amend the statement later on when the truth is finally revealed. People still wish to know why there was potentially an FBI agent running around with over twelve million UDIDs on his laptop computer. Even more interestingly, if it was not an FBI agent, where did some other average Joe get this information from?

    The hacker group continues to stir up trouble both on Twitter and from wherever else they can, saying that they still have several more files (over 3 terabytes) to unravel. Brace yourself for another possible smack in the face from Antisec.

    Exactly. And go Antisect for showing that the FBI isn't at all what it's cracked up to be! But bad Antisect for leaking personal info.

    So some agent had an over 3 Terabyte laptop and also a super massive upload speed while the hacker had a super massive download speed so they could download 3TB worth of data without the agent-agency knowing at the time.

    Hmmm makes you think...

    I think they were talking about 3TB of unrelated information not from the FBI laptop.

    I say leak more information. And leak the source. i think leaking 3mil more will get them. An i want to know what apple has to say about this, and if they are involved in any way. And the timing of this leak!!! Sketchy, right after Apple officially announces release date? Maybe a plot to kill the iphone sales? Maybe Samsung? Or maybe its the fact that im high off ganja. But ****.

    How would I be able to tell if my UDID was leaked? And what security problems does this pose?

    Read this and there is a search for you UDID: Check If Your Apple Device Has Been Compromised by the AntiSec Leak Also has a tut to teach you to find your UDID if you dont know how!...

    Also as to your second question as to what security problems does this pose read this: Why You Shouldn't Freak Out If Hackers Leaked Your Apple Device ID

    Because he's fake and thinks he's cool for having his username Anonymous and better yet he has a picture of Anonymous to make you think he's part of it

    I doubt this will have any direct unpleasant consequences for the end iPhone user.

    I find it a little strange that people think this is cool or even worse "freedom fighting." Rights movements have gone completely downhill these days.
