Last month, Apple Developer Center security was compromised when the servers were taken offline on July 18 due to a hack attempt. Today, Apple sent out an email to all the people enrolled in the developers program saying all the services are up and running. The company also mentioned that they will extend the membership of all the developers by one month to make up for such a long downtime.
The email apologizes for all the downtime and the delay developers had to face. According to the email,
We are please to let you know that all our developer program services are now online. Your patience during this time was sincerely appreciated.
We understand that the downtime was significant and apologize for any issues it may have cause in your app development. To help offset this disruption, we are extending the membership of all de veloper teams by one month.
If you take a quick look at the status page of the developer center, it confirms that all the services are online and running. The company also hasn’t revealed any name of who is behind the
I hope Apple took all the precautionary measures to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
