Is Apple tech’s worst security threat?
Apple, which once touted its hardware as invulnerable to hacks, may have become tech’s biggest security threat. Several security breaches in iOS show just how big the problem is.
The first one came to light last week, when the security firm Palo Alto Network said that 39 iOS apps which have been used by hundreds of millions of users were infected with XcodeGhost malware.
In fact, the problem is much, much larger than that. Security company FireEye has so far found an astonishing 4,000 apps in the App Store infected with the malware.
