Russian Hacker Sidesteps Apple iOS In-App Purchases 142

An anonymous reader tips news that a Russian developer has posted a video showing how in-app purchases for some iOS software can be acquired without payment. The hack does't require the device to be jailbroken, and can be accomplished even by users who aren't technically proficient. The method involves three steps: "The installation of CA certificate, the installation of in-appstore.com certificate, and the changing of DNS record in Wi-Fi settings. After the quick process, users are presented with the message pictured above when installing in-app purchases, opposed to Apple’s usual purchase confirmation dialog." 9to5mac notes that this doesn't affect all apps, since some of them make use of Apple's method for validating receipts.
