Update: The group originally claiming credit for the database breach has since acknowledged they had only performed a distributed denial of service attack. It seems the group simply used the maintenance-related Dropbox outage as an opportunity to troll the Internet. You win this round, @1775Sec.
Update 2: The Dropbox website is back up.
Update 3 - 1/11/14:Dropbox's status page shows that maintenance is still ongoing. Users continue to report trouble using some services.
Over 12 million unique device identifiers (UDID), and related, personally-identifiable information, for iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads have reportedly been hacked from an FBI laptop using a Java vulnerability. AntiSec has released 1 million of the UDIDs as proof of the hack. They've also released the following about the hack itself:
iOS and jailbreak developers Steven Troughton-Smith and Nick, who goes by the Twitter handle @TheMudkip have now managed to get iPad applications running on an Apple TV; in full screen mode running on a 720p HDTV. We told you yesterday how they were working on a way to bring iOS apps to the Apple TV. Well they have now moved a step closer to making this a workable solution.
System wide voice-to-text dictation, once exclusive to iPhone 4S, has now been replicated on other iOS devices thanks to a Jailbreak hack called Siri0us. In order to use the dictation hack, you will need to have a jailbroken iOS 5 device. A point to note, the hack does not use Apple's servers, it solely uses the Nuance speech recognition system on device, and it does not provide any of the Siri voice control features.
A developer has managed to get Siri to control his home thermostat. The hack does not involve any jailbreaking but does involve setting up a proxy server which intercepts the Siri commands. This proxy server can then be used to add additional command functionality to Siri.
The guys from Applidium claim to have cracked Siri’s security protocol and it could open the floodgates to third party developers and of course other hardware too. There is a downside, in order to use Siri on one of these other devices; you still need to have a UDID of an iPhone 4S device. A UDID is a Unique Device Identifier and is a 40 character unique number assigned to every iPhone.
