I read about it on CNET. Pretty humorous. Most of the buyers apparently had one-click buying enabled when they clicked on the link accidentally.

Hmm...I'll just browse for some new apps for no reason. Hmm...there's an app called "I Am Rich". I wonder what it does. Oops! I pressed the buy button. Oh no! What do I do?!?!

I imagine that's how it would go :P

thats why one should never set their accounts to allow easy buying

I've found this problem with iTunes. One click purchasing on that store charged $1.79 to my credit card for the Hues Corporation song "Rock the Boat" (I was aiming at a 30 second preview). I'm pretty sure you would have reason to say you didn't authorize the transaction if you were charged $999 for something like this.
