Computer and software giant Apple says it has taken its software developers' site offline after it was hacked, warning that personal information about them may have been stolen.
"Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our registered developers from our developer website," Apple said in a statement on Monday.
Although sensitive information was encrypted, "we have not been able to rule out the possibility that some developers' names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed".
