Apple Developer Center Serves Breached By Hackers
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
The Apple developer Center was down for three days, but Apple kept pretty quiet as to why the service was offline, at least until now. Turns out that Apple has been busy investigating a security breach. Developers have been sent the following email from Apple, which has been confirmed to be legitimate and it goes on to detail what has happened over the last few days.
iTunes accounts were not affected by the breach, just Developer accounts and no credit card data was compromised. Apple held off on making an announcement until they knew the finer details of what had happened so not to cause a panic and there is currently no timeline on the Dev Center coming back online, likely while they find a way of patching the exploit.
