Apple signAhead of Apple’s release of next range of products including iPhone 6, iPhone 5S and tablets, the hacking of developer site of Apple was shocking for the tech savvies.

Claiming to be leader of tech and mobile devices, Apple was considered to have some of the best Internet security around its empire.

But even a Turkish security analyst managed to breach into Apple’s empire and tens of thousands of developers are now in safe hands.

Following is an email from the Cupertino firm over the issue

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our registered developers from our developer website. Sensitive personal information was encrypted and cannot be accessed, however, we have not been able to rule out the possibility that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed. In the spirit of transparency, we want to inform you of the issue. We took the site down immediately on Thursday and have been working around the clock since then.
In order to prevent a security threat like this from happening again, we’re completely overhauling our developer systems, updating our server software, and rebuilding our entire database. We apologize for the significant inconvenience that our downtime has caused you and we expect to have the developer website up again soon.
