Find Out If Your Apple Device Was Among The 12 Million Units Hacked And Tracked By The FBI

Tyler Durden's picture

Several hours ago, the latest hacker group to gain prominence, AntiSec, a subset of Anonymous, disclosed that it had obtained the confidential user data contained in some some 12 million Apple units after hacking an FBI Dell Vostro notebook computer, "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" which contined a file titled NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv, which "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." In other words, the FBI had the personal data of a substantial number of Apple device users, certainly all of which had been obtained without prior permission. Naturally the question here is why on earth does the FBI have this data, and as TNW suggests, "They published the UDID numbers to call attention to suspicions that the FBI used the information to track citizens. Much of the personal data has been trimmed, however, with the hackers claiming to have left enough for “a significant amount of users” to search for their devices." AntiSec has subsequently released one million of these UUIDs and their associated data. Find out if your device is on the list as explained below.

First, courtesy of, here is a simple process to find out what the specific number is.

And then, with UDID in hand, go here:

Or, for those who are uncomfortable using the internet for uplink purposes, can use the following instructions on how to download the full list, via Anonymous:

Download links:
first check the file MD5:
(lol yes, a "1337" there for the lulz, God is in the detail)
then decrypt the file using openssl:
openssl aes-256-cbc -d -a -in file.txt -out decryptedfile.tar.gz
password is:
then uncompress:
tar -xvzf decryptedfile.tar.gz
and then check file integrity using the MD5 included in the password u used to decrypt before:

Looks like all my screams of "AlQeada, 911, suicide bomber, bin laden, bin laden. etc, etc" did not put me on their watchlist.  MUST TRY HARDER!!!!!!

Ironic that the main institution we need protection from via the 4th Amendment is the same entity that has no qualms about absolutely ignoring it.

The Constitution is not just dead, it's a rotted, maggoty corpse that has been skullfucked by jackbooted thugs.

"I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;"

And we thought they were only kidding about the "domestic" part. The sad irony is that they will recite this oath as they jail (or worse) the truth speakers.

I didnt make the list either.

I tried so hard.

But I bet your StarTac is on the list!

The only people who have anything to worry about are doomer libertarians preparing a coup, or silverbug preppers planning a terror attack or trying to undermine our currency with “liberty dollars”. Normal people have nothing to hide, which is why it is only extreme conspiracy theorists and right wing freaks that get angry about this.

Ah, this is the MDB we all know. MDB at his best!

I'm betting that the pussy junksta who junked you disagrees that this is MDB's "best".  His best is none too good.

I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad that my iPhone didn't get found in their list.  It really should have been there as I take pride in wasting resources of the machine yet don't particularly like the ways their crosshairs feel on my back.  But, by entering my phone's UDID and then clicking "Check", I feel a little bit like I just raw-dawgged a prostitute.  I'm a little worried it might burn when I pee in a couple of days.

Unless you're a latex Hand Puppet I'd say you're fucked.

Quick, send your PMs to me where I'll keep them safe and sound.

Sadly, this is the view of many US sheeple who are brainwashed by TPTB.  My father-in-law says, "If you don't do anything wrong, then you have nothing to hide".  His opinion doesn't change after I explain to him that simply having 7 days of food in your house makes you a potential terrorist.  You'd think that bit of info would be relevant since they are an Italian family.  When I give my father the same explanation he says, "That's ridiculous because then they would be targeting everyone".

My point of view is let's make it worth their while. Don't bore the FBI.

Right, so who's going to jail for breaking the law and tapping citizens illegally?

Oh... No one.

Ok, so who's losing their jobs?

Oh... No one.

Well at least the hackers are being considered national heroes for ending this clearly illegal operation against the people.

Oh... They're not?

Ted Kaczynski for president.
machineh's picture

Better Ted K. than rent boy Romney, who's workin' the glory hole in the men's room at AIPAC's convention:

Mitt Romney released a statement Tuesday afternoon, criticizing the Democratic platform for removing the Jerusalem language:


“It is unfortunate that the entire Democratic Party has embraced President Obama’s shameful refusal to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. Four years of President Obama’s repeated attempts to create distance between the United States and our cherished ally have led the Democratic Party to remove from their platform an unequivocal acknowledgment of a simple reality. As president, I will restore our relationship with Israel and stand shoulder to shoulder with our close ally.”

Translation: 'As president, I will suck Netanyahu's dick.'

Don't fear. The list is either Obama's campaign donor list or the member list of the LinkedIn Socialist Club.

The FBI had it because Obama wanted to thank them either way...

Sure we spy on you, for your own good of course, but please support President Obama's re-election campaign because of all he has done for us.  I don't happen to be gay so as near as I can tell he has done precious little.  That said the mouth breather segment of the Republican Party (a strong 60%) is even worse.  What a great system.  Faux choice at every election.  This whole system is sooooo roten its just disgusting.

Its not that the constitution is dead it is the adherence to it that is dead.  Situational ethics rule.  No absolutes.  Don't like the definition, change it.  Change we can believe in.

Looks like a child sexual predator to me. Check the bumps on his head for proof. I understand that all pre-verts have receding hairlines and shiny foreheads. Looks guilty to me.

He must hate our freedom.
