Chinese Pirates Create Fake Apple App Store

A group of software pirates in China have created a fake iOS app store online. The store is called KuaiYong.

It was previously available as a Windows app that let users install pirated software on an iPhone or an iPad without jailbreaking it. Now it is a full fledged website.

TechinAsia has the story: “The 7659 ‘store’ is full of pirated iOS apps and games available for free. While the content is nothing new – it was previously embedded in the Kuaiyong PC app – it makes the renegade startup more accessible to potential new users who can browse the available apps in their web browser. If you choose to download one of the iOS apps or games from the 7659 site, it actually downloads the Kuaiyong PC app if you don’t have it already.”
