    Hi all,
    Just been reading an article on the latest malware threat to IOS called Wirelurker. It originates from China and infects via unofficial apps. Jailbroken devices are particularly vulnerable. Apple are working on blocking it. I wonder if anyone has any views or further details?
    I am not too worried as I only download from App Store myself.

    Hi Mike - there is a two-day thread on the Mac Forums concerning WireLurker, for those interested - plenty of links provided. Dave :)

    Cheers, guys. I will check it all out. Had a feeling Apple has it in hand from what I read.
