    Apple sent me an email just now saying an intruder tried to hack their servers. They are completely overhauling their servers/software/etc.

    This is why it has been down.

    All personal info is encrypted and safe, but some names, emails addresses, and mailing addresses might have been accessed.

    At least now we know, although there was not much of a doubt. That much downtime could only mean a hack.

    Apple takes security pretty seriously, (I didn't say they were invulnerable)....you can bet they will take the steps necessary to lock their servers up tighter than Fort Knox.

    I would also expect future betas to enforce the UUID check even on an OTA update.

    Apple will be pissed off and rightly so.

    It would take one hell of a hacker to even attempt to break into those severs.
