Windows 7: Boffins: We have FOOLED APPLE with malware app

Boffins: We have FOOLED APPLE with malware app

Researchers from Georgia Tech's Information Security Center (GTISC) claim to have found a way to sneak a malware-ridden app through Apple's inspection regime, and have also raised concerns about “malicious chargers” for iPhones.

The GTISC team explains its research here and claim to have created an app “which rearranges its own code to create new functionality that is not exhibited during Apple’s approval process. This allows the malicious aspects of the app to remain undetected when reviewed and therefore obtain Apple’s approval.”

Now all those Mac users will come unglued when they get it because nobody writes code for programs to fix this type of stuff since "macs can't get viruses/malware". I hate that.

That's irrelevant anyway. Apple wants all the "fixing" done by approved Apple techs at bloated prices.
