Turn by Turn GPS Navigation Gets XAP Pirated – Microsoft Pulls Kill Switch

December 4, 2011 No Comments

Turn by Turn GPS Navigation had their XAP file pirated recently and their app was just floating about on the Internet. One person even had the audacity to post the pirated XAP back in the Windows Phone Marketplace as their own and for free. The sad part in all of this is that the app was actually accepted into the marketplace by Microsoft.

As soon as it was discovered though that this actually was going on. Microsoft went straight for the jugular and pulled the kill switch. In one insanely fast action they automatically uninstalled the pirated app from devices.

The Owner, under who’s account the app was uploaded is claiming that his PC was hacked has been threatened with $40,000 of damages.
