Last Updated: 2010-07-05 19:31:16 UTC - "... iTunes accounts have been hacked to make mass purchases of one developer's app. As a safety measure, I recommend to change your ITunes password ASAP
and, if you feel paranoid like me, delete your credit card info from the account until this issue is clarified

July 6, 2010 - "... cybercrime groups have now found a working business model in monetizing phished user accounts in Apple’s App Store. They’ve circumvented Apple’s “strict” app review process by submitting nonmalicious apps (doesn’t matter if the app is worthless) then used phished iTunes accounts to buy (and make money from) the worthless apps
... by targeting user accounts, cybercriminals attacked the weakest link in the system (the user)
, only using Apple’s App Store as platform and the worthless apps as means to cash in on phished accounts. May this incident serve as a glaring reminder on the importance of our online accounts, especially if our credit and/or debit cards are tied to them."
