    Apple developer website Hacked . . . . .
    Apple Developer Website Hacked; Developer Names, Addresses May Have Been Taken


    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.
    WOW . . . .

    I can safely say that this is the first time that a hacked website has genuinely affected me. I've been trying to log on for a while to add an iPod Touch to my list of development devices and kept being greeted with a "we're working on fixing an issue" page.

    There is a lot of Hoo Laaa going on over on the Apple Dev Forums, about people not able to Pay for another year, but what gets me, is its taken them 4 weeks from the reminder email to do it.
    I would be in the same boat, but i renewed 2 days after the email, and if it wasn't for that, my renewal ran out today, so I'm right now.
    Apple has said that all renewals have been extended and the Apps will stay on the store, BUT the Apps are not downloadable for those that need to renew ?!?!? Some people just astound me lol

    I just got a email, saying my Twitter account had been compromised and i had to change my password. . . .. Coincidence or what ??

    But seriously, what are Apple doing, now running into 5 days offline. People are getting fed up, people wanting to re-new have Apps on the store but know one can download them, meaning they are loosing $ . . .I wonder

    And I just received an email this morning that the Ubuntu forums have been hacked and that I should change my password. Another coincidence? Who's next?

    The truth is now out, and the video has been taken down already, which i believe showed what the Researcher did to infiltrate Apple.

    Researcher admits to hacking Apple's developer site, says he meant no 'harm or damage'

    Would this have anything to do with the plethora of "You've requested to reset your password" emails I've been getting from Apple since yesterday? Seems to be a bunch of people on the internet with a similar experience...

    Well, that music was unnecessarily obnoxious. (Why do people post videos like that?)

    Leukeh, it could very well be people trying to get at your password. That said, it may or may not have anything to do with this.
