Apple Developer Center Hacked, Some Developer Info May Have Been Accessed

Posted by · 14783 views · Translate

Apple has announced that its developer center was hacked. Although sensitive personal information was encrypted, some developer info may have been accessed.

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our 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 developers’ 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.

As of now the Apple Dev Center is still down.

I'd sue this guy, if he was going to tell apple about his little incident and warn them about security, why would he access some of apples info and delete their data?

Its Balic, don't panic about this. He just did a research trying to help apple. If apple would be smart and consider his research as a good will action, I hope he gets rewarded. Cheers

Do some research on the Armenian genocide before calling me a racist. Then you will so eho the racist is. Turks are not much different than hitler. My comment had nothing to do with his hacking.

You are saying it is nothing to the with hacking, this site is nothing to the political news, it's tech, you moron! ONE DAY THE WORLD IS GOING TO BE BETTER WITHOUT RACISTS!
