Apple App Store and iTunes Accounts Hacked

     Apple hackers are at large again. One guy, Thuat Nguyen has apparently hacked into iTunes. He did this dastardly deed just to boots the ratings for his book apps that accounted for 42 of the top 50 books by revenue in the Books section of the iTunes App Store. Other developers noticed the lopsided rise in Nguyen’s app and found it very mysterious. Up to $200 from hacked accounts were reportedly used to buy the developer's apps. So far there’s nothing official that’s come out of Apple concerning the hack but word is they’re still investigating. So if you notice a few books added onto your account, try to remember if you bought them, even if they are in Vietnamese.
