AntiSec group claimed they got unique device identifiers that are known as UDIDS. By exposing a Java vulnerability and clicking a folder that was on special agent's desktop in his laptop, who's an employee of FBI's regional cyber action and evidence response team.
AntiSec said it got the unique device identifiers, or UDIDs, by exploiting a Java vulnerability and accessing a desktop folder on the laptop of a special agent who worked with the FBI's regional cyber action and evidence response teams in New York. The hacked ids are series of numbers and letters assigned to apple devices such as Iphones, Ipads, Ipods etc. These ids are used by software developers to track the activity of an app used.
The most interesting part was that FBI denied being hacked as they tweeted as, "We never had info in question. Bottom Line: TOTALLY FALSE."
"The FBI is aware of published reports alleging that an FBI laptop was compromised and private data regarding Apple UDIDs was exposed," the agency said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.
"At this time, there is no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data."
But the truth is that 1 million iOS device IDS are leaked and sold, after this hacking task successfully performed by AntiSec. AntiSec hacker group claims to have accessed 12 million unique device identifiers on FBI computer
