ABSTRACT: This hacker used a series of VPN tunnels and Tor to hack Apple servers. Unknown to him (a hacker, mind you) his motherboard was sending its serial number through the connections. Your computer, even if you use Tor, is broadcasting its serial number through the connections, which is identifying you. You probably are not anonymous neither on Tor nor on Bitmessage. ===> Apple’s systems recorded the serial numbers of the MacBooks from which the attacks were launched. https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/08/17/apple-gets-cored-90gb-of-secure-files-stolen-by-high-schooler/ Details are sketchy, but it sounds like the teen – who’s described as being well-known in hacking circles – probably used virtual private networks (VPNs), Tor and other tools to try to hide his tracks. At any rate, Australian newspaper The Age reported that the high schooler, who can’t be named because he’s a minor, developed “computerized tunnels and online bypassing systems” to exfiltrate the files. But, try as he might, he got tracked down: Apple’s systems recorded the serial numbers of the MacBooks from which the attacks were launched. The Age reports that prosecutors told the court that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided the teen’s home last year. Prosecutors told the court that police seized two Apple laptops and that the serial numbers matched those of the devices that accessed Apple’s servers. The IP addresses of a seized mobile phone and a disk device also matched up with what Apple had recorded.
