After annoying developers and Apple with his in-app proxy method that allows users to download paid in-app purchases for free, Russian hacker has officially declared on his blog that the game is over, for now. He says based on Apple’s latest statement regarding the theft of in-app purchases, in which it has said that the issue will be resolved permanently in iOS 6 that currently there is no way to bypass the updated APIs. But he says that it will be the case when iOS 6 is released publicly, until then his service will remain operational.
By examining last apple’s statement about in-app purchases in iOS 6, I can say, that currently game is over. Currently we have no way to bypass updated APIs. It’s a good news for everyone, we have updated security in iOS, developers have their air-money. But, service will still remain operational until iOS 6 comes out.
He has also made it clear that the same service that allows users to download in-app purchases for free from Mac App Store is also functional, and that he has ‘some cards in the hand’ against Apple, and will use them when Apple takes action to stop the theft. [Via/Source]
