Hacked the Apple Developer Center

Apple HackedLast Thursday's website Apple for developers was for several hours offline. Everyone assumed that the company would upgrade some features of the site and so nobody gave that much importance.

But reality is far from the speculation of that day. The Developer Center of Apple was offline due to a security breach, according to an email that the company sent today to developers. Email began to be released on Twitter by the developers and so the news is no longer secret.

The email reported:

Apple Developer Website Update

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information from our registered developers from our developer website. Sensitive personal information was encrypted and can not 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 would like to inform you of the issue. We took the site down 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.

That is, in a nutshell

Last Thursday, an attacker tried to get the personal details of our registered developers from our site. Sensitive personal information is being encrypted, however, we are unable to exclude the possibility that certain names and emails from developers have leaked. In the spirit of transparency, we want to let you know about the issue. We downloaded the site immediately on Thursday, and since then we have been working around the clock.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the downtime.
