Russian hacker circumvents iOS in-app purchase method

This is some slightly unnerving news. A Russian hacker by the YouTube username ZonD80 has found a way to get free in-app purchases, even without jailbreaking. His hack, which uses a certificate which he provides and the changing of some DNS settings, allows users to install in-app purchases from large number of apps completely free. Some apps do not work, however, because they use a method of receipt checking that Apple has set up for developers. If you are a developer of an application that takes advantage of in-app purchases, you may want to implement the receipt checking APIs.

ZonD80 also runs a site, which houses all the certificates and also donations links for people who wish to keep his project going. Here is the information that the is sent through the service:

-restriction level of app

-id of app

-id of version

-guid of your idevice

-quantity of in-app purchase

-offer name of in-app purchase

-language you are using

-identifier of application

-version of application

-your locale

It is not recommended to be pirating Apple software, and Today’s iPhone and myself are not responsible for anything you do. This article was used as a warning to developers, and is not recommended to be taken advantage of.
