Apple Developer website hacked

9 posts in this topic

So for those of you wondering why it has been down for a long period of time, just had this email..

 

 

 

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.

If they'd done it wrong everyone would need to be changing their passwords and making sure their banking details hadn't been compromised.

Thought so.

 

No wonder why people were having their password reset! :)

I was being sarcastic.

Was it only iOS/paid devs that were sent e-mails? I've had an Apple Developer account for years and haven't received any notifications...
