iTunes Connect Bug Logs Developers in to Other Developers’ Accounts at Random

Andrew Cunningham, reporting for Ars Technica:

This morning, a number of developers signed in to Apple’s iTunes Connect service only to be greeted by a list of apps that didn’t belong to them. TechCrunch has a good roundup of tweets from affected developers — it seems that whenever developers signed in with their credentials, they were being granted access to other developers’ accounts at random.

As of about noon Eastern today, Apple took the service down to resolve the problem.

Looks like iTunes Connect is back up now. If you’re a developer, I suggest logging in and making sure nobody monkeyed around with your apps while this was going on.
