It's no secret that Apple detests the jailbreaking community. They have claimed that jailbreakers violate their EULA and consequently, break the law. When programmers, such as the iPhone Dev Team, conquer a specific piece of Apple hardware or software, Apple retaliates with a hardware or software update to minimize available exploits, thereby sending developers back to the drawing board. It seems to be an endless game of cat and mouse. “It looks like Apple may be taking a slightly more aggressive approach. If someone jailbreaks, they'll just disable their Apple ID, essentially crippling them from enjoying the pleasures of the App Store. Sherif Hashim, a developer that found a baseband exploit in the latest version of the iPhone OS 3.1.3, recently got a message on his phone stating "This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons." In addition, iH8sn0w, the hacker behind the PwnageTool alternative, Sn0wbreeze, also had his account disabled,” reports Redmond Pie.
