It's the developer portal that got "breached", not normal user data.

Doesn't it cost a developer cash to become a developer with Apple? I'm sure it's $99 a year.
Why wouldn't the developer have CC details in his account? I'm sure they would.
How is a developer paid? I'm sure banking details are on their accounts.
My point? In my opinion you seemed defensive; but, a data breach is always bad. The whole thing about who it was doesn't take back what was done.

It's really nice to hear from apple admitting that. It didn't use to happen. Anyway good move by Apple.

I guess this explains why many people were complaining about getting emails for password change requests. Step one was hacking Apple, step two was probably trying to hack emails.
