Submission + - Russian Hacker Makes In-App Purchases Free On iOS (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "Russian Hacker Alexey Borodin is giving free upgrades and other in-app purchases to freemium iOS apps, using a server which spoofs the receipts for in-app payments for iOS apps. It's a man-in-the middle attack, made easy by the fact that Apple uses generic messages for those receipts so they can be easily reproduced by Borodin's fake Apple server.
