AntiSec, a hacking group, claims to have released 1 million out of 12 million Apple IDs obtained from an FBI agent, The Next Web reports.
AntiSec says they retrieved the Apple IDs from hacking the laptop of Special Agent Christopher K. Stangl from FBI Regional Cyber Action Team and New York FBI Office Evidence Response Team.
Josh Ong wrote that AntiSec found more than 12 million Apple IDs in a CSV file on Stangl’s computer.
The hackers said the file also contained, “user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zip codes, cellphone numbers, addresses, etc.”
AntiSec said they leaked Apple IDs to show that the FBI uses the IDs to track the public.
The hack was released through the widely viewed twitter feed @AnonymousIRC.
