Apple confirms App development centre was hacked
Software manufacturer Apple has confirmed that its development centre, where apps are created, has been hacked leading to a network failure for more than three days.
According to News.com.au, Apple said that though the developers' information is encrypted, hackers might have accessed developers' names, email ids or even physical addresses, but ensured that customers' credit card information or iTunes accounts were not affected.
The report said that the development centre is still down and the company has not given a timeline as to when it will be restored.
Apple also denied being aware of users receiving any unsolicited password reset emails, the report added.
