The news that AntiSec hackers had leaked a million Apple UDIDs onto the internet was met first with concern, followed swiftly by suspicion. While the situation swiftly devolved into a he said/FBI said, the one concerned party who had remained silent on the matter was Apple itself. Until now.
Antisec has released 1 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs), claiming that it obtained them after breaching an FBI computer. It also claims to have over 12 million IDs in total, along with user names, device names, cell phone numbers and addresses to go with them. This is very not good.
Cops. Defense contractors. The FTC. Military attorneys. FBI conference calls. Some of the most striking hack-attacks of the past year were executed under the middle finger banner of #AntiSec. But what if this "movement" was a gigantic trap all along?
An Anonymous and AntiSec affiliated hacker has released an alleged 8 gigabytes of data from Italy's CNAIPIC cyber defense police squad. The dump holds data on defense, corporate, and intelligence agencies from around the world. Plus goofy personal photos.
Undeterred by a rash of arrests, the hackers at Anonymous are boasting "about one gigabyte" of data from NATO. But they're not going to publish most of it, as it'd be "irresponsible." The rest? "Interesting data," they say.
The fruits of today's Sun UK hack are starting to dangle down: LulzSec (out of retirement?) and Anon are tweeting logins of some serious British media brass. Foremost? Rebekah Brooks, the epicenter of England's voicemail hacking scandal. Update: phone numbers!
Well, seems like LulzSec has returned, and moved beyond the DDOS attack! Not content to merely shut down one of Rupert Murdoch's paper's websites, the hacking group has instead planted a bizarro-Onionesque account of the mogul's death-by-palladium on a Times redesign page masquerading as The Sun. Well played, #AntiSec.
Booz Allen Hamilton is a massive American consulting firm that does a substantial amount of work for the Pentagon. This means they've got a lot of military business on their servers—which Anonymous hacked. Today they've leaked it.
Anonymous has just dumped files today about IRC Federal, a government contracted IT firm, in honor of their #FuckFBIFriday 'holiday'. They've gotten access to contracts, internal documents, development schematics, logins and more.
Lulzsec has vanished into the ether. Anonymous is lost in Orlando City. And, I don't know what you're doing on the internet. Don't wanna know. But if someone were to step up in their place and expose corruption or shoddy corporate IT security, they should prepare for the oh-so-dramatic moment when the FBI rolls in and…
Italian police busted a grabbag of hacker suspects (they claim were) tied to Anonymous, including an alleged regional "head of the group" by the name of Frey. Two others were hit with charges after a 32-raid sweep of the country.
Antisec, the marriage between similar-hearted outlaws at Anonymous and LulzSec, hit several companies—and police squads!—websites since teaming up, but yesterday a company closer to your heart was hacked: Apple. But don't worry; customer data looks to be safe.
Looks like last week's "Chinga La Migra" strike against the Arizona Border Police was only part one—the sequel's landed today, and this time it's personal. Like, really personal: Anonymous is claiming social security numbers, girlfriend pics, and more.
LulzSec, after having wreaked all sorts of global havoc over the last several weeks, has officially declared that they're hanging up their top hats. The AntiSec movement that they revived, however, lives on.
The #AntiSec lulzcapades are in full effect right now, and it seems like anyone is a candidate to be hacked, infiltrated, or compromised in some way. So what about you? We figured we'd offer up a few tools to fend off hackers, trackers, and invaders from all angles.
