Apple: Developer Center issue due to a bug, not hacking

Apple’s Developer Center down for a while on Wednesday, and many feared it was due to a hacker attack. Many accounts had profile information changed to a Russian address.

However, Apple has issued a statement — as noted by 9to5Mac -- the issue – suspicious as it appeared – was in fact due to a bug.

Here’s Apple’s statement: “Due to a bug in our account management application, your address information was temporarily displayed incorrectly in your account details on the Apple Developer website. The same incorrect address was displayed to all affected developers. The underlying code-level bug was quickly resolved and your address information now shows correctly.

“There was no security breach and at no time were the Apple Developer website, applications, or services compromised; nor were any of your Apple Developer membership details accessed by, shared with, or displayed to anyone.”
