Anonymous hacks FBI again and dumps 12 millions users data
Anonymous hackers claim they have dumbed 12 millions Apple devices data including devices UDIDs, full names, addresses and zip codes. The group claims that all data was dumped from a special FBI agent’s computer using a Java vulnerability.
Until now 1 million users data has been released online via pastebin.com. The group also stated that the main reason for the hack is because the FBI is using the data to track users.
“FBI is using your device details and info and who the fuck knows
what the hell are they experimenting with that’, well sorry, but nobody will care.
FBI will, as usual, deny or ignore this uncomfortable thingie and everybody will
forget the whole thing at amazing speed. so next option, we could have released
mail and a very small extract of the data. some people would eventually pick up
the issue but well, lets be honest, that will be ephemeral too.
So without even being sure if the current choice will guarantee that people
will pay attention to this fucking shouted
‘F*****G FBI IS USING YOUR DEVICE INFO FOR A TRACKING PEOPLE PROJECT OR SOME
SHIT’ well at least it seems our best bet, and even in this
case we will probably see their damage control teams going hard lobbying media
with bullshits to discredit this, but well, whatever, at least we tried and
eventually, looking at the massive number of devices concerned, someone should
care about it. Also we think it’s the right moment to release this knowing that
Apple is looking for alternatives for those UDID currently and since a while
blocked axx to it, but well, in this case it’s too late for those concerned
owners on the list. we always thought it was a really bad idea. that hardware
coded IDs for devices concept should be erradicated from any device on the
market in the future.”
If the UDID’s proof to be genuine then the FBI has to give some serious explanation in regards to privacy and how the data ended to be in the hands of an FBI agent. More questions may arise as to whether Apple is providing the FBI with these data.
Update: Check if your device was included in the recent dump.
1)Firstly get your UDID (follow instructions here http://www.innerfence.com/howto/find-iphone-unique-device-identifier-udid
