Apple's developer website now back at full strength; users get one month's credit
Last month, you might remember that Apple's website for its developers was hacked. While some names, mailing addresses and email addresses belonging to Apple's developers might have been lifted, Apple promised that real sensitive data was encrypted. Turkish security researcher, Ibrahim Balic, took credit for the hacking. Balic claimed that his attack found 13 bugs on the site, which he reported to Apple and which he claims was the real reason why the site was shut down.

After closing the site, Apple replaced the software on the servers used to run the site, updated its database, and slowly started resuming functionality. It even put up a status board so developers could see what features on the site were working. On Saturday, Apple said that the entire site was up and running and the company was extending all memberships by one month.
