Apple's Ability to Deactivate Malicious App Store Apps
With the recent discussions about Apple closing down some software from the AppStore, one man - Jonathan Zdziarski - found something while looking inside the iPhone's operating system. And it seems that sneaky Apple went a bit further - it "phone home" to Apple server to check if there are any unauthorised software are installed on your iPhone.
When Apple launched the App Store, they suggested that the use of DRM'd and signed applications could allow them to protect the iPhone from malicious applications and suggested that they could deactivate such applications remotely. Jonathan Zdziarski, author of iPhone Forensics, reveals (via iPhone Atlas) the remote url that Apple is using to keep a list of the offending applications
The address is https://iphone-servi...nauthorizedApps but currently it is not showing anything.
What do you think of Apple's sneaky methods? Do you agree with it?
