Apple developers site was targeted by hackers | still down for maintenance

Apple developers site is down for maintenance , few components working , not all things working till now as apple posted on maintenance page : 

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our registered developers from our developer website. Sensitive personal information was encrypted and cannot be accessed, however, we have not been able to rule out the possibility that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed. In the spirit of transparency, we want to inform you of the issue. We took the site down immediately on Thursday and have been working around the clock since then.

hackers targeted apple developers site , according to report of guardian.co.uk  :

A Turkish security researcher, Ibrahim Balic, claims that he was behind the “hack” but insisted that his intention was to demonstrate that Apple’s system was leaking user information. He posted a video on Youtube which appears to show that the site was vulnerable to an attack, but adding “I have reported all the bugs I found to the company and waited for approval.” A screenshot in the video showed a bug filed on 19 July – the same day the site was taken down – saying “Data leaks user information. I think you should fix it as soon as possible.”
