Recently, Apple made headlines when it announced its developer portal had been compromised by hackers, and now a researcher has claimed responsibility. However, this is just the latest in a series of attacks against Apple, and not the first targeting of Apple developers.
Back in March both Facebook and Apple were hacked using a new method: infecting a forum popular with software developers. Since then we’ve seen increases in Apple ID phishing, malware, device hacking. All leading up to the recent news that their developer site was compromised. The Recorded Future Cyber Threat Intelligence App (pictured below) has been monitoring the situation in real-time. You can check out the live analytics here.
