Apple security hole allowed access to personal developer info

A recent security hole in Apple’s website allowed anyone to access personal information for all registered iOS, Mac, or Safari developers, 9to5Mac reports. The issue was reportedly discovered by developer Jesse Järvi, and 9to5Mac says that the hole was quietly patched Sunday night. A flaw in Apple’s internal Radar application allowed Järvi to access the information — which included cell phone numbers — from the full roster of developers. Information belonging to a number of high-ranking Apple executives was also accessible. Apple will reportedly be issuing a statement in the near future.
