iPhone Hackers: Get Out of My Store!

It appears that Apple is blocking known access to the iTunes App Store to certain Apple IDs.

At any rate, known iPhone hackers Sherif Hashim and iH8sn0w have apparently received the message “Your Apple ID was banned for security reasons”.

However, I’ve just seen an unconfirmed report that jailbroken iPhones are being blocked, which is a very different thing. I’ll return to this when I know more.
