Horizons readers will remember that back in September, hacker group AntiSec published more than one million Apple Unique Device Identifiers, or UDIDs. AntiSec said it had stolen the UDIDs from an FBI agent's computer, but the leak was eventually traced to a small Florida company called BlueToad, which had been infiltrated by hackers. 

"Once we realized we were responsible, it was the right thing to do to come forward," the CEO of BlueToad said at the time. "We felt it was important for people to understand that there might be a more legitimate source for that information getting out."

It's been a big couple of weeks for hackers and a bad couple of weeks for the hacked. Besides the Apple and Facebook attacks, the official Jeep Twitter feed was commandeered by pranksters; ditto for the Burger King twitter account, which was plastered with photos of the McDonald's logo.
