    Ummm...Jailbreakme.com? Three times now browser weakness were exploited to jailbreak. If a malicious hacker had done that they could have used the same vulnerability to install malicious code.

    We will see if it is legal or not, there will be an investigation on this.
    I am sure Antisec would not have a problem releasing data as to which computer they took the data from.
    With that data one can locate where this computer is and if it did come out of FBI, if it did and it was obtained illegally then heads will roll.

    FBI is mostly correct. There was never any stolen laptop. A rogue agent deliberately leaked the codes to Antisec, allegedly "for teh lulz".
    I like this idea! Lol

    If FBI have a reason to get UDID and the judge they went to who gave them the authority to get it from Apple, it would be totally legal for FBI to have these UDID.
    12 M UDIDs? Are you serious that this was reviewed by a judge???

    It's called a subpoena. "The FBI needs more information on the users of these [twelve million] devices, identified by their UDIDs or the device information of these [twelve million] users. This information is important to national security, and cannot be further discussed due to its classified nature." Signed by a Federal judge, and boom. That was easy. Again, assuming Apple is the original source of the information and a subpoena was how the information was obtained.

    UDID I can not control/change/secure it, even if something happen to it it is Apple's fault. If something happen to my account, Apple will be responsible for any damages. Just waiting for Samsung or htc to come out with something after iPhone 5 release, then I will switch out of iOS device and change my data to bogus info so there would not be a security issue even if someone hacks into Apple to get it.

    Something to think about:
    If hackers got legitimate UDID and Apple said they did not give them to FBI, then there is security issues with Apple because FBI or someone else hacked into Apple for them. I said someone else because FBI might have caught someone and this is evidence the hackers hacked into.
    ...You do realize that the UDID on Apple devices wasn't ever considered "secret" and was until last year (and still is by a few apps, mostly Apple-made) used by developers to set up push notifications, among other things, right? There is not a lot an evil party can do with a UDID aside from possibly intercepting push notifications intended for your device (or access services that use UDID as the sole access for authentication--which is a security issue with the application).

    Many legitimate developers (who aren't Apple) had or have databases of these values so their customers' apps work as well as they should. Their use has since been obviated and replaced by a pseudo-random number generated on an iOS device's first boot. Further, it's trivially easy to figure out a UDID knowing only an iOS devices serial number, MAC addresses, and ECID.

    Android devices, for example, have equally unique, equally essential information, such as Android ID or android.os.build.SERIAL (plus IMEI/MEID, MAC addresses, etc.) Most of these values cannot be changed by the user (the Android ID, like the Apple solution currently, can be changed following a factory reset or manually set by a user on a custom ROM).

    "For now, the FBI is calling details of this hack job false, adding that “at this time there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data.”


    Like they are going to tell you...
