So if you're the type of person that feels no moral obligation to follow all of the rules or purchase applications then go ahead and keep on reading. If you are the type of person that is morally obligated to NOT jailbreak your phone and purchase apps and in app purchases keep reading. This new hack affects both groups of people. In fact it affects everyone.
Recently, a russian hacker, ZonD80, figured out a way to bypass Apples servers and get around the certification for in app purchases.
In english: You can now hack your iphone or ipod so that in app purchases are free. Or if your the moral kind of person, you can at least see how he did it.
"This is demo of in-app proxy. This project allows you to buy in-app content for free. Why you must to pay for content, already included in purchased app? I think, you must not."
Now now, I'm sure Apple is already aware of this and is patching the software so as to stop this thief! At the end of the day though, would you consider this criminal? Or is it just human nature to develop something better...
