xCode Ghost iOS malware

The “most secure” mobile operating system and app store is taking some hits.

Over the last handful of days it has been discovered that hundred and perhaps thousands of apps created for iOS and approved for the appstore may also contain trojan code inserted into libraries of a modified Apple development tool. The developers of the XcodeGhost were able to talk to affected apps without the developers’ knowledge and possibly siphon off user and device information.

For more check out Lookout’s blog: XcodeGhost Apps which lists a number of confirmed affected apps and a number that may also be affected.
