AntiSec filters data 1 million Apple computers, says the FBI is tracking

AntiSec filters data 1 million Apple computers, says the FBI is tracking

(Cc) Witer

A group of group leaked a million identification codes for Apple iPhones and iPads, which the group says, were not obtained from the company but the laptop of an agent. If it is true, it means that agents are tracking users of these computers and apparently carries with it data from at least 12 million iOS devices.

Identification numbers were copied from a file extracted from a Dell notebook a senior federal agent named Christopher Stangl, who worked tracing activities LulzSec, and other such groups.

The hacking was done through a vulnerability in Java detected in March, said the hackers. Once infiltrated the computer, we obtained a file containing about 12 million records of devices, including the unique identification codes (UDID), user names and claims token and also a smaller list with names, phone numbers , addresses and zip codes. AntiSec published an extract from this data, some information edited to remove personal data of those affected.

The UDID include machine serial number and other data to distinguish specific equipment, and the filtered information appears to be genuine. The leak should not cause privacy concerns for users, rather the hackers intention with this is to embarrass the FBI, and alert as to why they have this information in their notebooks.

Stangl was one of the officers who participated in one of the intercepted calls by Anonymous between the FBI and Scotland Yard , regarding a joint investigation into Anonymous.
