Apple’s developer website hacked, now getting a complete overhaul

Last week Apple’s developer website mysteriously went down on Thursday. The reason for that has now been declared by Apple in a mail sent to developers. Turns out the website was hacked and someone tried to access personal information. Following this, the website was shortly taken down.

Apple claims that all the personal information is encrypted and cannot be accessed but says that there is a chance that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed.

Apple is now in the process of completely overhauling their developer systems, updating the server software, and rebuilding the entire database. No word on when exactly the site will be up again but Apple says it should be up soon.
