Apple: roughly 400 iTunes accounts hacked

Apple has told a prominent blogger that about 400 iTunes accounts were compromised during the recent rash of hacks that were used to boost sales of one developer’s apps. Clayton Morris, blogger and co-host of The Grizzly Bear Egg Café podcast, says that Apple responded to an earlier inquiry of his, claiming that only 400 of the 150 million iTunes users—less than 0.0003%—were impacted by the scam. Apple also said that the iTunes servers were not compromised in any way, and that Apple is going to have users enter their credit cards’ security codes more often going forward as an added security measure. The Vietnamese developer responsible for the most high-profile hacks, Thuat Nguyen, has been banned from the App Store.
