Apple Dev centre is down with rumours of a hack

Apple’s developer centre is currently down and have been since 11:30 a.m. Pacific with Apple saying only that, “Due to maintenance, some services are unavailable.”

However user on Twitter are sparking rumours that Apple may have suffered a hack as strange account modifications have taken place. One report is that physical address listed on a number of individual accounts have been updated to an address in Russia — bul. Novatorov, Saint Petersburg, Leningrad 198216.

This wouldn’t be the first time Apple’s developer portal was the target of a hack, back in 2013 Apple pulled the online resource saying it was for maintenance, two days before Apple then revealed the breach.

Update: maintenance seems to be over as Apple’s service status shows all services are back online.
