Apple hacked!!


Apple’s developer website has been hacked on Thursday 18th July 2013. Apple admits that an intruder attempted to some secured personal information of their registered developers and they can rule out the possibility of these data.

From Apple:

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of out registered developers from our developer website. Sensitive personal information was encrypted and cannot be accessed; however, we have not been able to rule out the possibility that some developer’s names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed. In the spirit of transparency, we want to inform you of the issue. We took the site down immediately on Thursday and have been working around the clock since then.

In order to prevent a security threat like this from happening again, we’re completely overhauling our developer systems, updating our server software, and rebuilding our entire database. We apologize for the significant inconvenience that our downtime has caused you and we expect to have the developer website up again soon.
