Things are not going well for Apple Inc. Although they won the case against Samsung in America but lost the the other one in Japan. Now One million Apple UDIDs (Universal Device IDs) were released to the public today, along with Notification Center tokens, device names, and device IDs, and while none of the data is personal information like device owners, names, and addresses. One can still find out all the info about the device owners like addresses, phone etc.

According to Antisec, the group that released the data, the one million is just part of over 12 million UDIDs they obtained from an FBI-owned laptop compromised in March 2012.
