We have seen recently how the in app store hack of iOS devices took place. The same Russian hacker now has found a way to rip off developers of Mac App Store. The process is similar to the iOS App Store hack.
- load and trust a fake CA (certificate authority) SSL certificate,
- load a fake SSL certificate signed by the fake trusted authority,
- change your DNS settings so you’ll be redirected to the fake App Store.
- install and use an app called Grim Receiper.(New Step)
The hack is published just before the Mountain Lion release, does it mean that the Mountain Lion release will be delayed? Apple is expected to soon push patches for this venerability.
