About 700,000 UDIDs of Jailbreak Tweaks Pirates Leaked

Many iPhone users who jailbroken their devices probably used to download and install cracked jailbreak tweaks from pirates repos at Cydia store. Earlier today about 700,000 UDIDs of devices used to download cracked tweaks from a pirate repo and they have been leaked online today.

The list is available as a text file, and a Twitter account was specially created to tweet one UDID every few minutes to somewhat expose the pirates.

You may call this move is the intention to shame the pirates who install cracked tweaks without paying a cent by exposing their UDIDs, this move doesn’t represent much risk for the users whose Unique Device Identifier was leaked as it can hardly be tied to any personal information that could identify a user.

In October 2012, a group of hackers leaked 1 million UDIDs, which raised much controversy. Apple quickly responded by banning the use of UDIDs for app developers and created a new Advertising Identifier instead, which made its first appearance with the release of iOS 6. The ban of UDID use in apps was enforced as of May 2013. So it is extremely unlikely that any personal information could be revealed because of these UDIDs, but there is still a possibility.

So what do you think ? Are you one of the above UDIDs or what ?
