broggyr writes “Seems it didn’t take long to hack the Windows Phone 7 marketplace. Quoting WPCentral: ‘For developers, the weakness in Microsoft’s DRM for Windows Phone 7 applications has been well known for quite some time, and there have been calls for Microsoft to address these concerns … Since then, a “white hat” developer has provided WPCentral with a proof-of-concept program that can successfully pull any application from the Marketplace, remove the security and deploy to an unlocked Windows Phone with literally a push of a button. Alternatively, you could just save the cracked XAP file to your hard drive. Neither the app nor the methodology is public, and it will NOT be released … It is important to note that this was all done within six hours by one developer.’”
