12 million iphone and ipad devices hacked, claim by anonymous
[link to nakedsecurity.sophos.com]

Hackers have published a collection of what they say is over a million Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), connected with Apple iPhones and iPads.



The data, claims the hackers, is just part of a larger database of 12,367,232 UDIDs, and personal information such as full names, cellphone numbers, addresses and zipcodes belonging to Apple customers. The data was allegedly stolen via a Java vulnerability from a laptop belonging to an FBI cybersecurity agent:


"During the second week of March 2012, a Dell Vostro notebook, used by Supervisor Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl from FBI Regional Cyber Action Team and New York FBI Office Evidence Response Team was breached using the AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability on Java, during the shell session some files were downloaded from his Desktop folder one of them with the name of ”NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv” turned to be a list of 12,367,232 Apple iOS devices including Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone numbers, addresses, etc. the personal details fields referring to people appears many times empty leaving the whole list incompleted on many parts. no other file on the same folder makes mention about this list or its purpose

This should be pinned. What was an FBO special agent doing with "user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone numbers, addresses, etc.," on his notebook?

The Dell Vostro is said to have belonged to Supervisor Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl from the FBI Regional Cyber Action Team and New York FBI Office Evidence Response Team; his system was hacked using an AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability in Java

Re: 12 million iphone and ipad devices hacked, claim by anonymous
From the anonymos message:

so the big question:
why exposing this personal data?
well we have learnt it seems quite clear nobody pays attention if you just come
and say 'hey, 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 'FUCKING FBI IS USING YOUR DEVICE INFO FOR A TRACKING PEOPLE PROJECT OR SOMESHIT' 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 shouldcare about it. Also we think it's the right moment to release this knowing thatApple 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.

so now candy was delivered.
few words, and just a few, about how the shit came. we don't like too much
about disclosing this part, we understood it would be needed, so, fuck
whatever. lost asset. Hope it serves for something.


During the second week of March 2012, a Dell Vostro notebook, used by
Supervisor Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl from FBI Regional Cyber Action
Team and New York FBI Office Evidence Response Team was breached using the
AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability on Java, during the shell session some files
were downloaded from his Desktop folder one of them with the name of
"NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv" turned to be a list of 12,367,232 Apple iOS
devices including Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), user names, name of device,
type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone
numbers, addresses, etc. the personal details fields referring to people
appears many times empty leaving the whole list incompleted on many parts. no
other file on the same folder makes mention about this list or its purpose.

So the hackers only got the iPhone file. Do you think FBI only collected iPhone data? The Java AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability exploit would work on Android as well, and Android phones also use also use UDIDs. Use an iPhone or use a Samsung...it's all the same.

they didnt hack the phones they hacked the laptop, with the file on it.

so the java exploit and the device type is irrelevant.

only a file containing iOS devices was found with no explanation.

we could guess all day about the data they have on other devices, but lets stick to the point of what we know.

they have 12 million iOS customer details.

The point is that the same Java exploit would work on iOS or Android, so FBI has them both. Anonymous only got the iPhone file...perhaps one of many. The UDID (iOS) or UUID (Android) identifies the actual handset. If a special agent is carrying those around on the desktop of his Dell laptop, the files are probably well-distributed.

But indeed, the question is "why"? And under what authority does FBI collect such personal information from American citizens?
