Cupertino finally gives an explanation for the extended downtime of its developer website.
After a weekend of outage and mysterious password reset emails, Apple has revealed the cause of the extended downtime of its developer website.
===> "Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our registered developers from our developer website," Apple said in an email sent to developers. <===
While Apple claimed that the site's information was encrypted, and thus unable to be accessed, the company could not rule out that developer names, mailing addresses, or email addresses were not accessed during the incident.
