After being down for several days, Apple Corp. has finally admitted that its developer website was the victim of a hacker attack last week, and some data may have been stolen.

Although most of the information that was taken was encrypted, Apple says that there is a possibility that the hackers may be able to gain access to some the names, mailing addresses, and email addresses of developers who signed up for the service.

The site has been offline for an extended period of time, and remains down today. The company hopes to prevent future security threats by overhauling its developer systems, including updating the server software, and rebuilding their entire database.

No specific date has been given for a restoration of service for the developer website.
