Hi guys, I have an iphone which I got in July of this year, and I was wondering if my UDID was hacked. How do I tell? I wasn't worried at first when I thought they got it from the fbi because I did nothing against the law. Now that I heard they got it from an app publisher instead, I am kind of worried.

Hacked? No way of knowing just from your post. You'll need to verify that with your carrier.

If it was leaked in march, and I got my phone in july, how would I be affected?

Also, I am not crazy about giving out my udid to some random site.

As I said if in doubt contact your carrier. I just provided you with information regarding UDID's to research for yourself. As you stated the list was leaked in March and you got your phone in July. Then it's unlikely your UDID is affected. I'm not sure what the reason for your UDID concern is? When you just explained away the information I provided.
