The Mac App Store's security has been cracked. Apple’s Mac App Store has only gone live for a few hours and folks out there have discovered how to get apps off it without paying.
The trick involves downloading a free app, such as Twitter, from the Mac App Store and copying certain files for it that will be copied into the applications folder of a non-purchased downloaded app, tricking the app into thinking that you’ve purchased it.
It’s definitely an interesting scenario, as Apple will want to ensure that the Mac App Store is secure for developers. Do bear in mind that we don’t condone piracy and believe in paying the developers for their hard work.
