Apple "Apple revealed Sunday that its Developer Center suffered a lengthy outage this week following a security breach that may have compromised data, but a security researcher has provided evidence to suggest the shutdown was in response to his identification of a vulnerability." It's no secret that Apple's developer portals are a mix of outdated, crappy technologies, and it seems that this security researcher did good work by making that fact very, very clear for everyone. Would be nice of Apple to acknowledge his work, although as we all know, that's about as unlikely as Pluto blocking the sun, no matter how Apple claims it wants to be "open" about this disaster in its public statement.

Some company gave me a login and begged for me to fix their email system.

I fixed their email system. Well, 3 times in fact because their own IT kept messing it up.

And then I got arrested for hacking.

But my iMac's hard disk contained chat logs that included the help plea + login info so I was a free man the same day.

This story is my only reward.

Funny enough we bought that company last year.
