The biggest known attack against the AppStore

09/18/2015
Apple’s AppStore hosted applications with malware that can steal personal data from users of iPhone and iPad mainly in China. The attack originates from a fake version of Apple's Xcode software used to create applications. Apps created with the fake version of Xcode contained XcodeGhost, a malware that passed all controls of the Californian company. Apple confirmed that all malware applications have been removed and they are working with developers to use legitimate software version of Xcode.
