"you need to answer some security questions to verify your apple id" keeps coming up on my ipad when i go to app store but doesn't happen from my iphone. A few people i have spoken to have this problem as well. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks

It seems to be something that Apple implemented this week, going by other peoples' posts. I can only presum that some accounts have been compromised or maybe they're just being careful.

 

I had a similar issue with Yahoo and it telling me that I needed to change the password on my mail.

It appears to be the real deal and according to cnet.com - an Apple spokesperson confirmed it for them.

Apple is really just beefing up security - for everyones's sake - that's all it seems to be.

Looks like it is for real.  Not necessarily a sign of a hacked acount.
