Do you remember last week when the App Store was hacked? Well, the App Store was hacked, again, as uncovered by 9 to 5 Mac.

In an article I wrote a few days ago, I explained how Apple was downplaying the situation by saying only 400 accounts were hacked, which to me didn’t make sense, and was way less than it could possibly be. It seems that I was right.

App Store Hacked Again

This week’s shady developer is from China and goes by WiiSHii. All the fraudulent apps are in the travel section which contains over 11,000 applications. That means these apps didn’t make it in the Top 100 because they were so few to compete with. People who thought I was wrong about this whole situation won’t be able to argue on that point.

They clearly used some cheating mechanism to get their apps in the top 100. Additionally, Ars Technica reports about a user who was falsely charged for a bevy of apps from the same WiiSHii development company.

Your turn now, Apple. How do you fix this?

    Waauw, this is the worst blog I have read for a long time, you make facts out of something you know shit about, now can you judge someone without having the correct facts. Apple might be the only one who knows what have happened and while the should inform us, you should get the facts before you judge.
    I’m hereby unsubscribing this blog…..

    If these people have some way to hack the rankings then why would they need to make purchases off user accounts? The app store wasn’t hacked. This just seems like more accounts have been compromised either from phishing, spyware or brute force attacks to crack the passwords.
