Apple Dev Center Hacked Featured

Apple’s dev site was hacked on Thursday last week (or as Apple puts it, was accessed by “an intruder”). That’s putting it lightly. Apple also noted that there is a possibility that developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses were compromised. To all the iOS devs out there, better check your hatches (and change your password while you’re at it).

Staying with Apple, a security researcher has claimed that the outage was as a result of him (or her) discovering a vulnerability and reporting this to Apple. Apple then shut the site down in response to this rapport and fixed the vulnerabiliy.

It seems as though the humble old SIM card can’t escape unscathed either. After three years of research by Karsten Nohl, a German researcher it has come to light that the SIM card can be compromised and used for fraudulent activities or allow you to be surveilled. I recon it’s the NSA man! 🙂

Hope that you’re having a good start to the week. It’s Monday! Here is The Daily Six Pack!
