Apple drops Charlie Miller as dev after finding
Well-known Accuvant security researcher Charlie Miller said he had been ejected from the iOS developer program just hours after discovering a remote control app exploit. Apple didn't explain the reasons why, although the test app, Instastock, had been published to the App Store and would have violated Apple's rules. Miller warned that Apple might have let the app go by without the media attention.
"For the record, without a real app in the App Store, people would say Apple wouldn't approve an app that took advantage of this flaw," he said.
