Apple With all the news about Anonymous, LulzSec, Anti-Sec, and so on, you'd almost forget there are more ethical hacking groups out there as well. One such group, YGN Ethical Hacker Group, informed Apple of several weaknesses in its developers website on April 25. Apple acknowledged the flaws, but so far, hasn't done anything about them. YGN Ethical Hacker Group has now stated they will fully disclose the vulnerabilities if Apple doesn't fix them in the coming few days.

Info is out there now

Apple really should fix their site. Even if the hackers don't release the info, crackers are now aware that the site is vulnerable. I bet money at least on of them is already trying to figure out how to abuse the Apple site, since he knows there's at least one way in, and might not have tried before because he had assumed it was safe before.

criminals where already aware. If these Hackers could find the issue, you can bet someone with criminal intent has also found the issue.

This is what makes high bug counts a good thing provided they show fast patch times. software that isn't getting bug reports or isn't getting expedient patches for those bugs is either no long in development or neglegent towards it's users.
