Russian iTunes Store displayed Porn Images by Error


Russian itunes stores

In an attempt to search films to rent, the Russians have been getting porn images on the Apple iTunes Stores, Russia portal.

The Russian iTunes stores were one of the 56 that Apple rolled out this Tuesday. Their intentions would have been to link to home website, but that .xxx ending the web address are places with real explicit contents says an IT expert. The firm has not made any comment about this when it was approached by BBC correspondence.

xxx web address on iTunes store

Mikko Hypponen is an IT researcher at Top F, he said that the iTunes store users were actually coming across pornographic images, but were unable to buy or rent these movies.

He said that if someone eventually clicks the movie, rent or buys it, they will get the original content they had requested for and not actually a porn film, only that the images was just there.

Its sounds like when you go to your video club to rent a movie, you find another paper as the covering, but you get your demanded movie in the CD plate. It might be an error, as the movies were being re-arranged in a rush, the covers were incompletely available, and they just picked one to cover another.

Then as they were arranging movies that are yet to get images in the Russian iTunes store, they needed to enter a URL where images were suppose to pin the movie cover, but since there was no image URL yet, they just entered xxx.xxx trying to keep the space open for later update.

As he was making his statements, he said that the error is a simple thing for Apple to fix, what the Cupertino giant will just do to the affected Russian iTunes store movies is just to link the front cove to Apple front page.

From IT Security firm, Sophos, we present Graham Cluely, he simply called the event “a serious blunder by Apple”

He said the last thing you will ever want is let’s say you are downloading Kung Fu Panda for your children and you just discovered you are looking at hardcore porn.

It is so unfortunate that Apple had refused to test run its software properly before getting it down for the masses to use at the Russian iTunes store, the situation could have generated something worse.

If those link pages had archives malicious contents, for example, unsuspecting users could have just go through to dangerous links which will in turn infect their computers with malware.

As of now, the situation is as difficult as wiping away the unpleasant images they have seen from their memory more than cleaning a Trojan off their computer hard drive.

2011 witnessed sales of web domains ending with .xxx as debate about whether it is necessary to tag the domain of websites with adult contents or not.

Then ICM Registry was given the assignment to check into this and it par the .xxx thing and considered the .com and .org.

In the days of Steve Jobs, Apple is fond of checking out every error before releasing any product to market, it seems the new CEO Tim Cook is getting something wrong, he had to apologize after a flaw in its new Map apps making Apple apologize to customers for the first time.

Tell me why is Apple making error these days?
