Apple security expert finds security hole in appstore apps

“Charlie Miller, a researcher with Accuvant Labs who identified the problem, built a prototype malicious program to test the flaw. He said Apple’s App Store failed to identify the malicious program, which made it past the security vetting process.”

Mr Millers dev account has since been cancelled due to a breach of T&C’s due to the way he exposed this hole.

I’m all for exposing Apple for the sham they are but it’s reasonable enough to ban someone for voiding terms.

Perfect exampl eof how Apple are not perfect and are just as or sometimes more vuleranable to security holes.
