  "One million unique device identifiers (UDIDs) from iOS devices have been
  posted online by hacking group AntiSec, who claimed the UDIDs came from an
  FBI-owned laptop. The group published a file containing the UDIDs-as well
  as push notification tokens, device names, and more-on Monday evening,
  promising that there are plenty more entries where that came from. AntiSec
  claims the original file contained roughly 12 million UDID entries-some
  with very personal data attached, such as full names, cell numbers, and
  home addresses."  http://j.mp/Rhq4yu  (ars technica via NNSquad)
