Russian hacker targets Apple’s App store

A Russian hacker has targeted Apple’s App Store, publishing a method for obtaining free in-app purchases from IOS applications.

First noted by a Russian blog, the workaround doesn’t require a jailbroken Idevice and supposedly works on all versions of IOS from 3.0 to 6.0, enabling users of an Iphone, Ipad or Ipod Touch to get free in-app purchases.

The blog also explains the steps of the hack, which includes installing a CA certificate, installing an in-appstore.com certificate, changing the DNS in the WiFi settings and entering your Apple ID and password.

What’s more worrying is that the hacker, who goes by the name of ZonD80, runs a web site where donations are being accepted to support the development of the project.

However, there is some good news for IOS developers, as readers on the Russian blog have said that the IOS hack doesn’t work, with one user moaning that in-app purchases can’t be grabbed for free on Gameloft branded titles.

Apple was unavailable for comment at the time of publication, but we imagine it’s likely to fix the security flaw soon.
