Apple has denied access to Vietnamese software developed Thuat Nguyen on iTunes, after he hacked into the accounts of 400 iTunes users.
Thuat Nguyen used the users credit card information to increase the sales of his application. At some point, his application was ranked on the 42 position in the top 50 best sold applications. In the opinion of Amichai Shulman, director of Imperva, a company that develops security solutions, this was the hacker’s mistake.
” If his application wouldn’t have appeared in top 50, it’s possible that this scam would have never been discovered”. he says.
Apple announced that their servers were not compromised, but recommends that each user should contact their bank and changing their security codes.
iTunes users complained many times in the past that their accounts were hacked.
