Apple This could be big - although just how big remains unclear. "There you have. 1,000,001 Apple Devices UDIDs linking to their users and their APNS tokens. The original file contained around 12,000,000 devices. We decided a million would be enough to release. We trimmed out other personal data as, full names, cell numbers, addresses, zipcodes, etc." How did AntiSec get this data (they claim)? From an FBI laptop. Why an FBI laptop would have a file with personal information on 12 million iOS users, we don't know - especially since 10000 of them are Dutch/Belgian, and last I checked, those do not fall under FBI jurisdiction. Did the FBI obtain it from an application developer, or from Apple itself? Then again - 12 million users? From a single iOS developer? I find that hard to believe.

I've not viewed the contents (or even downloaded the file), but if the published data is purely just UDID then there's a chance this might be a hoax.

They might have just cracked the algorithm that generates UDID and published those. After all, if there's no user data associated, then how do you prove that those IDs were not generated rather than hacked.

But as I said, I'm just speculating based on what little information has been posted in here. If anyone has more information then I'd be very interested

I see. It would be be pointless faking those details as they could easily be verified.
