If I were him I would of not said anything on Twitter in the first place. I would have just told the dev team and continue making an unlock for the phone. Then put the finished unlock on this website. That would have been a smarter move by a hacker. That's just my thoughts on the subject.

next time you get a account with apple to make apps maybe it would help that your name and your jailbreak not have your real name attached to it. also shut your mouth to the exploits stop helping apple out the more you talk the more they close the OS to you people with every new firmware your making it to easy for them to figure it out just release the jailbreak without giving away how it works it's call corporate secrets if apple can do it so can the jailbreak community .learn to be tight lipped about your secrets.

To prevent spreading of unconfirmed news on your site that i proudly follow, this is the first time i ve got this message on the app store and itunes, timing is very weird :), first thing i was told when i inquire about this thru one of my most imminent friends, that this may be a password issue, so i tried resetting my password back, and all went fine, but i got the same message again when i tried to download any app or music thru app store or itunes, so i thought like, ok i ll do another account with another e-mail that doesn't have my name, but my visa was rejected!!!, which i thought of as wtf, this doesn't appear as apple act, at the end i ve managed to have a new account using my wife's visa and and another e-mail, (could they have disabled any login with my name and my visa......i don't know for sure) i m really confused if this was an apple act or just someone was messing with my account, but i just decided to get it clear here to prevent spreading of unconfirmed news over your valuable site Dr sherif Hashim

This is common. I get this every few months myself. It is a result of someone guessing you Apple ID and attempting to login as you and failing three times. Because Apple uses the same ID across the store online, iTunes store, Developer connection, and mobile me one lockout can seem devastation of the worst manner occurred. Now after you reset your password it still occurs, then it might be news. And now that you've posted your ID well, you are just hosed for all time. I'd reset the password then check with Apple to change the ID to something new but stay linked to the accounts already set up. Best of luck. I couldn't recover my iTools account (and now that ID is locked out forever as Apple doesn't reissue) ... Similarly my MS passport account is locked into being a kids account because when created during internal testing age was never asked for. So it defaults to "0" when they went live, and my MSDN and other subscriptions require my parents (none associated) to change it... Catch 22. Hope you can get Apple to just relink to a new private ID. This is a basic flaw in their system, but for the best of reasons.

This look more like a publicity stunt than anything. ANYONE can get that message from the App Store by merely entering the wrong password 3 times. No big deal.

what? are you kidding me? i wish that was the reason but is not, i first got that messege when i try to update a few games that i purchase and it gave me that error so then i went to my comp and try to login and it was the same error.

Apple CEO will like to control everything like a BORG QUEEN (Star Track Voyager series). The hackers should not announce their findings in advance. Seems like Apple CEO and his team are babies who want to control the world and cancel the account of peoples without a valid reason. It is a shameful.

ROFL...no im not laughing at the guys but at the image used by the guys at iClarified, lol, on the Mapple case I have to note that Mapple have always shown to be a company based on old school russian communism, if they had a gun and the ways to do it probably they will shot the ppl behind the devteam.
