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

Posted July 21, 2013 at 10:53pm by iClarified · 16063 views
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 got my letter... Now I'll just make a few changes on my idea... and look and put in a New Guideline.

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.

My Grand Grand Grand father was Armenian and I am living in Turkey. I know the people like you who is the reason of the problem between Turks and Armenian... 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!

I have an idea: since we will probably never get rid of all the racists, why don't we just get rid of all the minorities? I hate everyone that doesn't look like me. I also hate everyone who is more intelligent than me... which means I hate EVERYONE. End of update.

No I have a better idea, lets get rid of ugly warted trolls like iFake, his name says it all, he's a fake user and is way worse than turkish dudes. Lets target him instead of turkish guys.

I agree, iFake is a loser, and no-one should post with this name every again. If anyone posts with this name, it means that he likes to lick the spunk running down his slut mom's legs after she's done working at the whorehouse!!!
iHate the fake iFake

I agree too, you probably want ifake off this Site, can you be more specific for which ifake you're referring to b/c I've seen 2 ifakes here, so you didn't say which one it is.

Slamdroid wouldn't be that easy for them to hack into apples hq. Their company doesn't have that many people using it anyway, since apple can still make their current products better, this means they're smart enough to track down who did this.

Who was it. ? Who took credit for this hack?
iFake - July 22, 2013 at 12:11am
Hi, I have nothing intelligent to say, but I like typing so I'm posting this anyway. Boy, I sure hope that someone will make fun of this post, so that I can get into a long argument about exactly how much of a loser I am!!!!
iTard - July 22, 2013 at 3:09am
Don't mind me, brother, I just want a war, I'm the one who wants real attention, my name says it all, I always make big deals out of small things, now in this post, look who's getting fans tonight loser ass copying shit.
