Mac Developer: Another pirated app service uses Apple enterprise license to distribute stolen software
Another pirated app service uses Apple enterprise license to distribute stolen software Thought to be run by Chinese owners located in Shanghai, the vShare App Market has officially been in operation since 2011 and is recognized in some jailbreaking circles as a go-to source for free apps. The service recently gained notoriety for compatibility with non-jailbroken iPhones and iPads running iOS 8 and above.
Like other recent pirated app services, vShare is built on Apple's enterprise licensing technology. Designed for corporations or other entities with large iOS device deployments, Apple Developer Enterprise certificates allow license holders to provision their own apps for internal distribution and download.
There's that inconvenient
software monoculture getting all up in yo face again.
