Obama’s iPad UDID Was Among Those Leaked By AntiSec

President Obama is an Apple user through and through. He answers Reddit questions from a MacBook, got an early iPad from Steve Jobs himself, and Rush Limbaugh even thinks Obama hacked Siri just to mess with him.

But just because you’re the leader of the Free World doesn’t mean you’re not susceptible to AntiSec hacks too. The UDID for President Obama’s iPad may or may not have been among the more than 1 million UDIDs the AntiSec leaked this morning from the FBI’s databases.

PasteHTML claims that Obama’s UDID is 473d6e1ebf0b100ed172ce5f69c97ba6c8f12ad5 and it’s among the those leaked by AntiSec. If it’s true, then Obama named his iPad “hobamain” which might be a mash-up of his middle name, “Hussein” with his last name.

Is it really him? We’re not sure, but we wouldn’t doubt that the FBI was tracking his UDID. For purely security purposes. Maybe.

    Can you actually do anything with someone’s UDID? I’ve given mine to a few devs so that I could help beta test.

    When Apple gets it, you can be permanently blocked from beta software without paying, like so many idiots do.

    A hacker group CLAIMS they hacked an FBI computer and got a bunch of IDs
    A website CLAIMS that number is Obamas iPad

    Neither claim can be verified and yet folks assume they are both true. Truth could be this group got the numbers from an app or app developer. Or a dozen other situations that have nothing to do with the FBI

    As or Obama does anyone believe, with the potential security risks, anyone but the Secret Service would possibly have access to that information.

    I was going to say the exact same thing. Misleading headline all for click throughs I suspect… Come on CoM…I am starting to lose faith in you and I have stayed around for a long time.
