Even though it hasn't even launched yet, Hackulous has announced that they have already cracked the Apple Mac App Store. Hackulous is a community known for cracking Apple DRM and indexing cracked iOS applications. The community has long said they only do what they do because Apple does not offer trials or refunds on apps in the iOS App Store. Hackulous offers two products, Apptrakr, an index of cracked apps, and Installous, an app for jailbroken devices that allows the installation of the cracked software.
Before Apple has a chance to launch the Mac App Store on January 6th, Hackulous has already found a way to remove the DRM that comes with the applications, using a new software dubbed Kickback. Despite having the software available already, Hackulous admin "Dissident" says they will not release it yet. More details here.
