The User Information List Data not updated as same as the user profile data in SharePoint 2013 , noted that some user profiles in UIL can be found twice , one with the right data and the other with wrong one ,

so is there a solution for this for all the SharePoint farm site collections , as far as i know that UIL is built automatically for each site collection .

    Configure the user profile service to update the user information list.

    Please follow the article to configure the user profile service.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/create-a-user-profile-service-application

    Once the user profile is configured check the mange user properties, this will be populated latest information from AD.

    Once this is done then it will automatically update the user information in the "User Information List".

    if it does not update the user information you can use the below power shell command to update the same.

    $web = (Get-SPSite http://site).rootweb
    $web | Set-SPUser -Identity "user details" -SyncFromAD.

    Hope this helps you to resolve the issue.
