In an interesting non-announcement, it seems that the applications that have caused such a stir today have now been removed from the iTunes Store. That is, the ones of which we are aware.
We’ve gotten no response from Apple, so there is no confirmation as to whether Apple itself has removed the applications, or if the developer has become aware of the publicity and decided to leave well enough alone.
To that end, keep an eye here on TNW. In the next few minutes, we’ll be reporting on some other rogue developers that we’ve uncovered. This might turn out to be a very interesting week for Apple.
In the mean time, make certain that you’re taking precautions against having your own account compromised.
