Security Breach at iOS Developer Site

Apple has sent an email to developers notifying them that its portal at developer.apple.com suffered a security breach. As a result, the company took the site offline while it investigates, leaving many mobile development firms without a way to access the tools they need to create and publish iOS apps.

A Turkish security researcher named Ibrahim Balic claims to be the one behind the “attack.” “My intention was not attacking,” said Balic. “In total I found 13 bugs and reported [them] directly one by one to Apple straight away. Just after my reporting [the] dev center got closed. I have not heard anything from them, and they announced that they got attacked. My aim was to report bugs and collect the datas [sic] for the purpose of seeing how deep I can go with it.”

According to The Guardian, this is the first known successful hack against Apple’s web services.
