Test versions of programs from the Apple TestFlight system for the period from 2012 to 2015 leaked to the Internet

In the network turned out to be an archive of test builds of iOS applications that were published in the Apple TestFlight system. The archive contains games and programs from 2012 to 2015, and experts do not know how the data leaked from the company’s servers.

iOS application developers use Apple’s TestFlight system to organize tests among users or closed groups of specialists. It usually publishes early builds, prototypes, and beta versions. With TestFlight, third-party users can submit installation requests, and test versions are isolated from the main App Store.

In December 2023, a user of the social network X under the nickname Teraleak published an archive of test builds from TestFlight that were developed between 2012 and 2015. Of interest, you can find unreleased games and programs in the archive. For example, several series of Angry Birds were found in the leak, which were never officially released.

Security experts say they don’t know how the apps could have gotten into the open. In addition, the archive may contain confidential data of beta test participants, but the relevance of this data is in doubt due to the age of the archive. The author of the leak does not comment on the situation.
