Apple UDID hack was from BlueToad server

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Apparently the hack that happened last week which leaked almost one million Apple UDIDs where the hacker had claimed that he got it from an FBI laptop, was from the server of BlueToad, a publishing service that offers digital publishing tool and mobile apps, according to its chief executive Paul DeHart who told NBC News that the file that has been posted by the hacker was 98% match with BlueToad data.

BlueToad has apologized about the leak and has said the security vulnerability of the server has been fixed.

Apple in other hand had said that it will soon be banning the use of the UDID and will replace it with other developer tool, and that is after some raised concerns about how easy anybody could obtain this number and use it for hacking purposes.
