Hugh Pickens writes “Adam Mills writes in the Examiner that Apple has been cutting off access to the iTunes App Store for iPhone hackers and jailbreakers. Sherif Hashim, the iPhone developer who successfully hacked the iPhone OS 3.1.3 and unlocked the 05.12.01 baseband for iPhone 3GS and 3G devices, discovered he’d been cut off and twittered: ‘”Your Apple ID was banned for security reasons,” that’s what i get when i try to go to the app store, they must be really angry.’ Another hacker, iH8Sn0w, who is behind the Sn0wbreeze tool, confirms that his account has also been deactivated even though iH8sn0w’s exploit had only been revealed to Dev Team, the group responsible for the PwnageTool. ‘It is kind of surprising that two people associated with jailbreaking have had this happen to them so soon after one another, but it’s too early to say if this is a campaign that Apple is starting up,’ writes Mills.”
