Extended Apple Developer Connection Outage Due to Security Breach

To be frank, I’m surprised anything like this hasn’t happened in the five years that the developer centre has been extremely popular, owing to the iOS App Store.

This sounds serious, but not awful — only names, email addresses, and physical addresses may have been seen. Not comforting, especially if you use a specific email address for your ADC account, but not as worrying as a more serious code or billing exploit. Sounds like this is going to take a while to mend, but that it will be significantly more robust when it has been.
