A few days ago, tech giant had to shut down its Mac, iPhone, and iPad developer site to carry out a huge unscheduled maintenance. At first, Apple didn’t reveal the reason, but later the company admitted that its security experts detected an intruder who might have stolen users’ data.
Although sensitive data was encrypted and not accessed, Apple claimed that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and email addresses might have been accessed. But it later turned out that the evil intruder was Ibrahim Balic – a London-based penetration tester. Organizations regularly hire Balic in order to find flaws in their systems, and Ibrahim recently decided to take a look at Apple’s websites. In result, he discovered 13 bugs there and reported all of them through the online bug reporter. After a bug report the portal was taken offline.
However, the company had done as it usually does with security concerns and didn’t even bother to reply to the tester. Instead the tech giant assumed it was under a massive attack. In the meantime, Balic made a YouTube video to demonstrate how he managed to access developer data, but he took the video down after noticing that he hadn’t obscured the details of the individual developers. Some of you might think that Apple would be a bite more sensitive to the security of its developers and thank people who find the bugs.
Earlier in 2013, one iOS developer forum was compromised and infected employees from Twitter, Facebook, and other tech giants with malware. Intruders with stolen Apple developer accounts would also manage to upload malicious apps under the developer's name. The drawback of the company’s security policy is that it has taken offline its developer website while developers were preparing apps for iOS 7, planned for release later in 2013.

|penetration tester...a somewhat unfortunate job title|
|Asbos nickname for his new thai bride is apple(cos she used to have an adams apple)|
|Just goes to show you how much apple really care's about security. Keep clinging to youre hopeline, and the fact that youre Architecture is based off from BSD. Nothing of there's is secure from there Stripped version of BSD(Darwin), to there modified Version of Apache they use as the base for a 'web server'. There a joke, Preying on Millions of idiots that think there products are "Better" because of Advertising, Sleek model designs and a Extremely High price tag...|
Just because it looks like a Designer made it and has a Designer Price Tag, doesn't make it better... Whats next, Gucci Designer Carrying cases? ohh wait they already make those for Is**t...
|Obviously my mind is in the gutter, but what a kewl title, I thought to myself, man would I ever love to be a PENETRATION Tester! But turns out it may not be as exciting as the title suggested.lol|
|hahahah i also do penetration tester by myself on the website and software apps... not the operating system much.... i have my own setup and custom software.... there are other built penetration tester software on market..|
|@ SiLvErDuSt used to? from the footage I've seen she still does....|

|Boob after Boob - Apple and the tester - "made a YouTube video to demonstrate how he managed to access developer data, but he took the video down after noticing that he hadn’t obscured the details of the individual developers"..... I'm a Boob tester|
|You'd have thought penetration testers would have all been searching for a company called cherry really |
Although apple do seem to be a bunch of c**ts so maybe its not that far off target.....
|Thought that the "Penetration Testing" might have had something to do with their "pricing strategy."|
That, they should fear.
