Class-lawsuit filed against Apple for placing a phishing app disguised as a cryptocurrency wallet on the App Store

Published

Apple claims the App Store “is the safest and most trusted place for users to get apps.” This claim is disputed in a nine-count class action lawsuit filed against Apple by users of the Toast Plus app.

Users of this app who downloaded it from the Apple App Store found that their money was gone. According to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Maryland, Apple allowed hackers to place a phishing app disguised as a cryptocurrency wallet on its online app store, prompting the plaintiff and others to download and install it.

The lawsuit says Apple is liable because it did not test the software distributed by its online store, which it tightly controls, allowing only approved vendors to work and receiving (until recently) a 30% commission on every sale. The lawsuit also clarifies that the template disclaimer included in the user agreement does not apply in this case, since “Toast Plus was not an actual application, but instead was a means of committing fraud, which does any existing contract using it as a subject, invalid “.

According to the lawsuit, contacting Toast Plus, Apple and law enforcement did not resolve the issue. The lawsuit also states that anyone who has downloaded the Toast Plus software “is entitled to receive statutory damages in excess of $ 10,000 or $ 100 per day for each day of violation, actual and punitive damages, reasonable attorney fees and profits the defendant from the violations described above ”.

Elon Musk accused Twitter of recklessness the company intends to

Billionaire Elon Musk, who plans to acquire Twitter, accused the social network’s executives of reckless actions that jeopardize the completion of the deal.

Musk’s advisers sent a notice on Twitter that the entrepreneur intends to complete the deal on the terms stipulated in the agreement dated April 25, 2022. Musk’s lawyers are pushing for the deal to be canceled in Delaware court, scheduled for October 17, in order to raise the necessary funding without hindrance and complete it as early as October 28.

Surprisingly, they (Twitter) are insisting on continuing this lawsuit, recklessly putting the deal at risk and putting the interests of their shareholders at risk.

Elon Musk accused Twitter of recklessness: the company intends to continue to sue

In April, Musk offered $44 billion for Twitter, but then demanded to check the company’s data that the number of fake accounts used, among other things, to send spam, did not exceed 5%. According to Musk, the social network underestimated the number of such accounts, and also did not provide sufficient information when requested. He was also dissatisfied with the personnel policy of the company. Later, on July 8, Musk notified Twitter that he was refusing to buy it. The social network filed a lawsuit against the businessman in a Delaware court.

The other day, Elon Musk said that the purchase of Twitter is “an accelerator for creating X, an application for everything.” The service may be very similar to WeChat, the Chinese super app that the billionaire openly admired and grew out of a mini-internet messaging service with a billion user base.

The head of the Zecurion analytical center, Vladimir Ulyanov, said that the words of Telegram founder Pavel Durov about the dangers of using WhatsApp are PR for his messenger, and also added that such statements should be treated with a certain degree of skepticism.

Any programs that we use, both for ordinary users and corporate ones, are all vulnerable in one way or another. If now we do not know about the existence of any vulnerabilities, this does not mean that they do not exist at all.

Pavel Durov's statement about the danger of WhatsApp called the head of the analytical center Zecurion a fight with a competitor

Vladimir Ulyanov said that messenger vulnerabilities always have a human factor, and their detection is a matter of time.

You should not assume that there is one messenger that is absolutely unique in terms of device and security, and the other is full of holes and bad, and you should not use it. No, this statement is rather made within the framework of competition.

The head of the Zecurion analytical center also noted that in any application there are settings that allow you to increase its security level. He reminded that you should not follow dubious links sent from an unknown addressee.

Earlier, Pavel Durov said that WhatsApp has been a surveillance tool for 13 years.
