iTunes Accounts got Hacked by Vietnamese Guy!
Did you get your iTunes account hacked? Yes I think so, Go ahead and Check for it Now because a Vietnamese Developer, If you navigate to Books category of iPhone App Store and Check top paid apps, You will notice that there’s a Developer who owns 40 apps. (WTF)
Also guys on The Next Web reporting that they got their iTunes accounts Hacked and they found themselves owners of the 40 apps.
Here’s another iPhone Developer reporting that a Vietnamese Developer is hacking iTunes Accounts, he was the first who find that:
I’m the developer of the QuickReader iPhone application. I’ve been noticing over the past few days that my app along with yours has been slipping down in the rankings. On trying to figure out why, I discovered what appears to be a concerted and criminal effort to game the Books category rankings.
It looks like the Books category has been hijacked by an app publisher named mycompany/Thuat Nguyen. His apps now occupy 40 of the top 50 ranks in the Books category on the app store. These are apps that typically wouldn’t rank in the Books category and most of them don’t have any ratings or reviews. However if you look at the reviews for the Conan 3 app, you can see that 2 reviewers complain (as early as Monday the 28th) that their iTunes accounts were hacked and the apps were purchased by the hacker. It would appear that this publisher is hacking accounts and buying his own apps in order to drive up his rankings in the Books category.Google Ads:
This is having a negative impact on our apps, which are being pushed down in the rankings and losing visibility, plus it makes for a bad user experience.
