Apple Developer Services now all back online, developers receiving free month extension

After the initial attempted intrusion to the Apple Developer Portal shut things down completely, services have slowly been restoring as Apple made efforts the get things back to normal. As of this morning, an email is hitting inboxes informing that all developer program services are back online, and Apple has an apology gift for all their registered developers:

We understand that the downtime was significant and apologize for any issues it may have caused in your app development. To help offset this disruption, we are extending the membership of all developer teams by one month.

After the attempted intrusion, Apple has worked to overhaul their systems, update server software and rebuild the database, all in the hopes of preventing any future incidents. It's been a long road back to normality, but we got there in the end.
