Researcher comes forward to claim responsibility for “intrusion” on Apple developer site


See on Scoop.itData Nerd’s Corner

A man admits that after reporting a security issue in its developer website to Apple, he went on to download the user information of more than 100,000 developers for testing purposes.

Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

Apple said last night its website for third-party developers was accessed by an “intruder.” Now a man who calls himself a security researcher says he was the so-called intruder but that he was testing for holes in Apple’s system and reported his findings to the company through standard channels. If true, it seems Apple did not appreciate his help.
