Apple Website Hacked

Software developers got news from Apple that its website was broken into and some of their information was compromised. Apple said that it is overhauling its website systems, replacing software and rebuilding its databases.

Apple did not rule out the possibility that some of the developers names, mailing addresses, and email addresses had been assessed by the hackers. Apple informed developers that intruders attempted to retrieve their information from the website.They also said that customers “sensitive” information along with personal profiles is encrypted and therefore cannot be hacked.

In response to the attack, the company says that Thursday the site was taken down, and they have been working tirelessly since the attack to come up with a secure solution. It was unclear how many of the 275,000 registered developers of Apple's mobile devices were targeted by the attack. Apple employs all of these people to work on developing software for IPhones, IPads, and the Mac computer line. Apple has been completing work on it's brand new operating system for its mobile and Mac computers.

Apple has somehow been able to avoid the headlines unlike some other companies that broken into. Sony was attacked in 2011 and more than 100 million of its customers accounts were compromised. Anonymous, a political internet group, attacked the systems of companies

such as Nintendo, and government agencies.

Apple is scrambling to get the systems back in order and maintain information integrity. The site held confidential information about the new iOS7 and the new operating system for Mac computers, the OS Mavericks.

Facebook reported earlier this year its developer website was compromised with a zero day exploit. The same zero day exploit was aimed at Microsoft into a iOS website. Twitter was also hit with an attack that accessed over 250,000 user accounts. Jokingly tweeting from Burger Kings account that they had been purchased by Mcdonald's. Now Apple joins the list of exploits at their developers’ site.

A researcher actually admitted to accessing the development center website and says that he reported 13 bugs to the company and no intentions of using the encrypted data. He explained that he wanted to see “how deep” he could go. Ibrahim Balic who calls himself a “security researcher” who wanted to reveal serious holes in Apple's’ developer site.

On a YouTube video he is attempting to clear his name and possibly avoid any legal charges against him. He wrote “ I will be deleting all the datas I have, only got all these datas to see just how deep I can go. also have informed apple before taking these datas.
