Seems like Apple is about to face a real big problem here. A Russian hacker named ZonD Eighty has managed to and developed a method to hack Apple’s in app purchase system or say mechanism which allows bypassing the process of in app purchase. This means with this method user can avoid and get through the purchase which takes place in the app and can get the app or the content for free.
This hack is a very serious problem for Apple since it can damage the whole system, effecting Apple and the developers financially. The process of hacking requires installing a couple of certificates which include CA certificate and in-appstore.com certificate; also a custom DNS entry on user’s device is required. After which the in app purchase mechanism gets hacked allowing user to get the apps for free.
The hack though does not work for all the apps in App Store but covers most of them which is a big problem for all those app developers. The process is undoubtedly illegal and is not recommended by us or any other website reporting the same. The developer or the hacker has uploaded a video demonstrating the working of the hack. You can watch the same below which is encoded.
Right after the completion of the process to get the hack working a pop up with two options appears when you try to do in app purchase. Out of which you have to tap on LIKE. This will bypass the process of in app purchase and will get the content required for free. And oh I almost forget to mention, the process of hack does not require Jailbreak and also there no specific version of iOS is required, which means iOS 3.x to iOS 6, any version will do.
The site in-appstore.com seems to be down right now due to high traffic as mention on the site. The site is owned by the developer to take in any type of donation. Apple and the team of developers will definitely look forward to take down the hack. This is a very serious matter as you imagine. This is just a beginning and there will be more controversy when this matters spread like a fire. Just wait and see what comes next.
