AntiSec hackers team argues that they published more than a million unique Apple device’s IDs (UDID), hacked from the FBI. Hackers have reported that the amount they were able to get from the Federal Bureau of Security more than 12 million user names, device names, phone numbers and addresses. Apple uses UDID numbers to identify and control iPhones and the other gadgets. Cyber-criminals are released only part of the information. At their disposal is a text file of about 90 MB, which includes the personal information of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users: UDID, IDs APNS (push-notification), etc.
