In Soviet Russia, apps purchase you

Alexey V. Borodin, whose iOS hack lets users acquire in-app purchases for free, 1  is now in a cat-and-mouse game with Apple. WAtoday:

“Borodin has responded by moving the server to a new location that is harder for Apple to reach and he now accepts donations using the anonymous Bitcoin service. The hack works by placing Borodin’s server in between the device and Apple – intercepting incoming purchase requests from the iOS device. But now Borodin has tightened up the exploit to avoid interacting with the App Store, making it even harder for Apple to shut down.”

This after telling Macworld, “I think [Apple] will hire me.” What an ass.

  1. Sometimes called “stealing.”
