Zadnjih nekoliko dana na Appleovoj stranici za developere prikazuje se poruka "We'll be back soon." što nije baš čest slučaj kod Applea, osim kada se ažurira njihova web trgovina.

Sada je i službeno izašla informacija kako je netko pokušao provaliti u Appleov centar za developere, no iz kompanije tvrde kako su svi podaci dobro zaštićeni te kako nije bilo zlouporabe istih. Kako bi osigurali svoje developere, Apple radi na novim sigurnosnim postavkama, ažurira softver na serveru i iz početka gradi kompletnu bazu.

Inače, stranica za developere sadrži beta verzije novih operativnih sustava iOS 7 i OS X Mavericks, te ostale alate za developere kao i forum isključivo namijenjen developerima. Evo i službenog priopćenja:

Apple Developer Website Update

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.
