Apple Developer Center Outage Sparks New Round of Phishing Attacks
Phishing attacks targeting Apple customers are regular occurrences given the size of the company's user base. But with many casual users perhaps only vaguely aware of Apple having had a recent problem with some of its online services, they may now be more likely to fall victim to such an attack.
Earlier this week, independent security researcher Ibrahim Balic speculated that he may be responsible for the breach that caused the extended outage of Apple’s Developer Center, which for the most part remains offline one week after it was taken down by Apple. Yesterday, Apple outlined a plan for bringing its Developer Center back online, and also created a status page to display the availability of its services.
