iTunes account hacking and app chart fixing

05Jul10

There have been a few reports over the weekend about hacked iTunes accounts being used to purchase apps and push them to the top of the App Store.  The developers in question seem to be working out of Asia, possibly thinking they can avoid US prosecution.

One of the developers caught for this has had all their apps removed from the App Store already however The Nextweb have a detailed report claiming that there are other developers still gaming the system.  They are also still getting reports from people saying their accounts have been hacked with large app purchases made on them.

It might be best to check your iTunes account purchases recently as there have been UK users targeted.  If you’re really worried, just change your password until it’s discovered how these accounts are being hacked.

UPDATE: Apple have made a statement
