On September 4, 2012, Anonymous released 1,000,001 unique device identifiers (UDID) from Apple iOS devices together with their associated Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) tokens, device type and name. The release was announced in a Twitter post at https://twitter.com/AnonymousIRC/status/242822072026398720 with full announcement and download links posted in http://pastebin.com/nfVT7b0Z. According to Anonymous, the release is only a subset of over 12 million entries found in a laptop belonging to FBI agent, Christopher K. Stangl. The full dump in the original file, NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv, contains UDID, user names, name of device, type of device, APNS tokens, ZIP codes, mobile phone numbers, addresses, and more. Fortunately, for now, the release made by Anonymous does not contain personally identifiable information except for the name of device and they described the purpose of the release is to create awareness among the public of the fact that FBI uses the information to spy on citizens.
