it absolutely is Apple's fault. they built and maintained the system, which includes all security features. it's their job to make sure it's secure or they shouldn't be asking for our credit card information and keeping it on file in their databases. If you don't have the technical skill to secure a database full of private financial data, you shouldn't be in the business of collecting such information. Ever.
Did anyone not blame Microsoft for security holes that viruses used to exploit? How about Adobe when it came to Flash/Acrobat exploits? PayPal when they were having issues? No, they shouldered the blame because it was their system and they built it. They are responsible for its stability and security (end-user stupidity not included).
This should also go without saying: if any of you have the same e-mail address and password for your iTunes account as you do for web forums and random web businesses that you signed up an account for...you should change it. that wasn't smart of you.

Real reason why itunes is hacked:

Sorry, but you fail to understand the basic fact that the conference is basically sponsored by Apple competitors, and stacked so Apple products are "hacked first."

I don't understand why apple doesn't make us submit our source code when we upload our binarys to itunes connect. Wouldn't that make the process faster to approve, Safer for users and quicker to find private API's?

Perhaps it's best to use only gift cards in connection to your apple account for purchases.I am the Vincent (Vital Information Necessary Centralized) iPhone.

I steal $50 out your wallet (assuming you have $50), and spend it in KFC, is that KFC's fault as well?
Your use of different font colours and underlining doesn't make your argument have any more credibility.
Hand in your bank cards, your cheque book, your driving license your Boy Scout ID, hand in your passport, hand in your SS card, cancel your bank account, stop using the internet. They all have security issues.

Apple denies this and my bank is pointing the finger at them. They are on top of it and are returning my money as we speak. But here are a few tips to keep this from happening to you.
1. Use an iTunes gift card.

It is high time people start writing viruses for OSX. While it would suck for users (including myself) it would make Apple eat their words of being the safest most virus free OS. Yes, that is when nobody gave a crap Apple. Now that you are in the limelite I can almost guarantee you get to deal with the BS Windows users have dealt with all along. Congrats! It means you are actually successful now!------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

not having an itunes account doesn't guarantee you safety either. we got a 500 dollar charge a month back from paypal, but we don't have a paypal account.
the internet is nothing but trouble, yo

I was typing on my iphone at f***ing 3:30 in the morning, what you're expecting
1st, Your device would only get it if it's jailbroken and connected to 3G connection. As it's jailbroken, it's easier for hackers to publish it through 3G connection to jailbroken devices as it's already opened to 3rd party apps.
2nd, it only happens if you don't change the root password and the OpenSSH password, as long as you change them you're safe.
3rd, although it wasn't a big deal that it only changed my wall paper, but that mean later on they can start using your 3G to download from apple store and imagine the bill you will get by the end of the month.
