Security lapses Mac developers and Apple allow users to pirated or modify applications downloaded from the Mac store application, users of several reported on 6 January. Less than 24 hours after Apple introduced the Mac App Store for Mac OS X, there were reports on various user forums, including Pastebin and Daring Fireball, pay some applications do not properly validate the receipt of the application store, which facilitates obtaining the free software.
A spokesman for the group named as “dissidents,” he told the BBC that Hackulous wait until the Mac App Store is well stocked with the applications before it releases back on the internet. “We will not release back until long after the store has been established. We do not want to devalue and frustrate application developers,” said dissident, according to the BBC. Hackers have also found that the reports, payment applications downloaded from the Mac store the application may, in some cases, running free with just copy and paste in the number of receipt of a free application.
In fact, it is a very simple, if not ill-hack. However, as noted by Daring Fireball, the trick does not work for all applications for payment in the store. Apple developers follow the instructions to validate the application store receipts will not be affected, it is only those who do not check at all, or do the type of visit, we know some who take advantage of. It’s a bit disappointing that Apple would allow such a simple control to slip through the cracks of payment applications. No doubt we’ll see developers rushing to fix their applications and resubmit them to the store, but it seems that what’s done is done, when it comes to current versions.
