Google Facing Potential Class Action Suit Over In-App Purchases

Google-Dollars

A mother has filed a class action complaint in California against Google over in-app purchases made by her son. The story begins with the mother buying a 99¢ game, Marvel Run Jump Smash, for her son. By buying the game, her Google account was left authenticated for 30-minutes (by design) so that in-app purchases would not require a password.

CNNMoney is reporting that Apple has pulled the plug on updates for OSX 10.6, better known as Snow Leopard.

This really comes as no surprise as Apple has released three versions of OSX since, Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks.

Upgrading to Mavericks is quick and painless and highly recommended to keep getting those security updates.

If I had a company dedicated to malware, I would also be addressing my attacks on Android …
