Apple Malware Attack – Bitdefender Comment
BitDefender Update: The XCode Ghost infection is the first large-scale incident to ever make it through the Apple walled garden. Human error (the developers running tools downloaded from third parties), paired with lack of proactive countermeasures (in-depth review upon approval and advanced anti-malware on users’ terminals) have exposed a significant number of iOS users to malware.
For years, Apple users have dismissed the idea of third-party security solutions, claiming that the iOS ecosystem was so well designed that they are practically immune to threats. However, iOS has become the second largest mobile operating system in the world and hackers are constantly improving their tactics to get to those 40% of iOS users.
