Apple admits their Dev Center was hacked, some info may have leaked

Hackers have been having a hell of a time during this past weekend, with both Ubuntu and Apple getting hit. Apple’s developers website went down on Thursday of last week and after a few days the company finally admitted there was a breach in their security.

At first Apple’s website only displayed “Maintenance is taking longer than expected”, but as the offline period stretched into the weekend many folks began to wonder if there wasn't something more serious going on.

Finally Apple started displaying a message explaining that hackers had indeed breached its security systems, and that some info may have been leaked. According to the notice found on the website, sensitive personal information was encrypted but some developers’ names and addresses may have been compromised.

The website is still offline as of this writing, and that’s because, at least according to Apple, they are completely revamping their security software; though some would say that upgrading your software after the breach is a too little, too late.
