I just updated to Mac App Store 1.0.2 with the update to 10.6.8.

 

The Mac App Store said I have one update available, for Angry Birds....

 

I do not have Angry Birds on my system, but when I clicked the update button I got the following message.

 

"You have updates available for other accounts.

 

Sign in to asdfff2011@mail.ru to update applications for that account."

 

 

 

Needless to say this account does not exist.

 

Any ideas what this is all about???

Mac Pro 2 x Quad Core Xeon @ 3.2GHz/iPod Classic 160Gb, Mac OS X (10.6.7), GEForce 8800512 MB + 6GB RAM

    Do you have any unauthorised apps? Cracked apps can course this I think. From a quick serch around the web, it seems there was an Angry Birds crack that used that email address.

    Werid. I guess it can't do any harm to your computer. It's just anoying that you've got that little red dot.

     

    Have you tried logging into your account in the App Store app? That might get the App Store app to check your perchse history and clear it from your updates.

    I do have the same issue here. An Angry Birds update 1.5.1 is shown in the Updates tab and I NEVER bought this app.

     

    Sound quite related to my update to 10.6.8. My other Mac (MacBook Air running 10.6.7) does not have this issue.

     

    I would like Apple to investigate this as I cannot trust this AppsStore anymore in the mean time.

     

    What is going on with this "asdfff2011@mail.ru" account??

    It seems that the 1.0.2 (build 63.1) version on the MacAppStore is to be responsible. I have also an old MacBookPro running 10.6.7 with MacAppStore 1.0.1 and he does NOT have this issue.

    Well it's worth a try. So do you think this is Apple or what it makes no sense why don't thousands of people have this issue.

     

    Let me note a few things see if they match:

     

     

    First Mac with issue:

    Mac OS X Version 10.6.8

    Mac App Store Version 1.0.2 (63.1)

    Had Angry birds, deleted it still need updating.

     

    First Mac with issue:

    Mac OS X Version 10.7 beta 4

    Mac App Store Version 1.0.2

    Did not have angry birds, needs updating.

     

    Makes appsolute no sense.

    Angry birds on Snow Leopard was purchased with my own account. NOT CRACKED and then a remove and cannot install again under my own account. If i try entering my own email address  in i get this:

    i never bought Angry Birds on the App Store and never had any cracked software on my machine.

    Both macs in my household shows the same issue. one is on 10.6.8. and the other one is on 10.6.7 !!!
