    In my updates section, it says I have an update for the "Nynan Cat: Lost in Space" app. Problem is, I've never downloaded it! It's not on my Applications folder or anything, either.
    I downloaded the iOS version ages ago (deleted now).

    The weirdest part is that when I click the update button, in the Apple ID section, I get this: "", which isn't my Apple ID. I have never even seen that mail before :/

    when did you jailbreak your phone? Cause that happens all the time with others phones who have been running the "installous" app under cydia.

    Only time I jailbroke was like, 2 years ago, using a different iPod, and when I didn't own this mac yet.

    My curren't iPod isn't jailbroken.

    AlabamaSlammer doesn't realize you're talking about your Mac and that this is happening in the Mac App Store.

    This is happening because at some point you installed an app pirated from the Mac App Store.

    I have this same problem, with the same address. I have at no time purposefully downloaded a pirate Mac App Store application. I've searched through all of the MASreciept files on my machine and they all correspond to applications that are from the store.

    Regardless, I have gone through everything that I have downloaded recently and removed it, legit or not to see if anything would remove this. So far I have found no way to track down what's causing this.
