Palo Alto Networks recently discovered a new family of iOS malware dubbed Wirelurker. The malware infects iOS devices through a pirated third-party application and once downloaded, can impact non-jailbroken devices. The malware-infected app has been downloaded more than 350,000 times, meaning hundreds of thousands of devices may be infected.
How can iOS users protect themselves against Wirelurker?
Listen to our latest security slice podcast and hear Tyler Reguly, Lane Thames and Craig Young discuss the why the biggest iOS threats come from third-party app sources and whether we should require “licensing” for technology users.
