On Sunday we reported details of how one specific app developer had managed to hack iTunes users accounts and use them to purchase his own apps – making it to the top of the iTunes charts.
As the story has developed, the problem has grown far more serious than initially thought – not just that one particular developer and his apps - the Apple App store is filled with App Farms being used to steal.
iTunes users have reported anywhere between $100-$1400 spent using their accounts.
Please be aware of this and check your accounts. Read the entire article and if any unauthorized activity is found regarding your account, contact your bank/credit card company. Also change your password, whether you have been hacked or not--especially if you have a weak password--and take the other actions recommended in the article.
