[ NNSquad ] Apple's in-app purchasing process circumvented by Russian hacker

Apple's in-app purchasing process circumvented by Russian hacker\

http://j.mp/LeS1VR  (9 to 5 Mac)

   "First noticed by Russian blog i-ekb.ru, the "in-app proxy"method does
    not require a jailbreak, can be completed by novices in three steps
    using just an iOS device, and allows users to install in-app content
    for free. The hack also works on all devices running iOS 3.0 to 6.0 We
    have confirmed the method works (at least temporarily), and the
    published instructions are starting to get attention, so we decided to
    publish this story as a warning to the Apple developer community."
