Apple bereitet PyMusique ein Ende [Update_2]

Keine vier Tage hat es gedauert, bis Apple die Nutzung von PyMusique (und damit den DRM-freien Download von Musik aus dem iTunes Music Store) unterbunden hat. Seit der Änderung lässt sich allerdings mit iTunes Versionen vor 4.7 nichts mehr aus dem iTMS herunterladen. "The security hole in the iTunes Music Store which was recently exploited has been closed, and as a consequence the iTunes Music Store will now sell music only to customers using iTunes version 4.7," Apple said in a statement given to MacCentral. "Customers using an older version of iTunes (only around 15 percent) will need to get the free upgrade to iTunes 4.7 to continue purchasing."
Update: "A test of PyMusique on Monday morning showed that it was still able to preview songs in the iTunes music store, but no longer able to purchase music." fügt CNET hinzu.
Update_2: DVD Jon macht seinen nächsten Zug: "The iTunes Music Store recently stopped supporting iTunes versions below 4.7 in an attempt to shut out 3rd party clients. I have reverse engineered the iTMS 4.7 crypto which will once again enable 3rd party clients to communicate with the iTMS."
