Developer Site Did Not Have a Security Breach Says Apple

Yesterday, widespread reports claimed Apple’s developer site had been breached, as it started showing Russian addresses temporarily, like in the screenshot below shown by @TheLegoless, despite two-factor authentication enabled:

Apple has clarified the situation in a statement to The Loop, saying the issue was caused by a bug, and not a security breach:

“Due to a bug in our account management application, your address information was temporarily displayed incorrectly in your account details on the Apple Developer website. The same incorrect address was displayed to all affected developers. The underlying code-level bug was quickly resolved and your address information now shows correctly. There was no security breach and at no time were the Apple Developer website, applications, or services compromised; nor were any of your Apple Developer membership details accessed by, shared with, or displayed to anyone.”
