Another iPhone Developer Gets Busted Stealing Phone Numbers

iPhone game developer Storm8, creator of games such as World War, iMobsters and Vampires Live, has just been hit with a suit for secretly gathering the phone numbers of everyone who purchases its games.

It's not the first time we've seen this; Swiss developerMogo got busted gathering numbers and then calling people to harass them to buy more apps, which is certainly a more brazen move. Storm8 claims that this was a bug, but they're getting sued anyways. It doesn't pay to be shady, devs! [Boing Boing via Kotaku]
