These are the 85 iOS apps affected by the XcodeGhost malware

These are the 85 iOS apps affected by the XcodeGhost malware
Over the weekend, we told you about the malicious version of XcodeGhost that spread malware to 39 App Store apps. A rogue version of Xcode was downloaded from Baidu by iOS/OX S developers that should have picked up the latest version of it directly from Apple. Now, the number of apps affected by malware is up to 85.

We have a list of the apps that are infected. At this point, the best thing that you can do if you find one of these apps on your iPhone or iPad, is to delete it from your device until the developer says that it is ok once again to install it.

For example, this afternoon, Rovio, the company behind the Angry Birds franchise, said that a version of Angry Birds 2 available in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, had been affected by the XcodeGhost attack. The developer now says that an update has been sent out to remove the malware. Rovio says that if you live in one of the affected areas, make sure that you have the latest version of the app. The version of the Angry Birds 2 app in other markets is fine to play.

If you have any of these apps on your phone, delete them immediately:

Angry Birds 2
CamScanner Lite
CamScanner Pro
Card Safe

CITIC Bank move card space

There goes the troll crying and complaining that he's been called out again. There are even others here in this very article saying you're a troll. Everyone can't be wrong, especially concerning you.

And everybody knows you're a diehard blackberry fan who will attack anyone that disses blackberry.

You're partially correct. I am a true BlackBerry fan that stands up for the company when trolls like you spew BS and FUD on BlackBerry articles. I'm not ashamed of dispelling your lies with FACTS, and will continue to do so for as long as I see fit. Deal with it. However, EVERYONE knows your a troll that spews BS and FUD on Google, Motorola, Samsung and BlackBerry articles that cries like a small child when called out on your trolling. One needs only look at how many here have admitted that your a troll t see that I'm telling the truth.

“Oh s**t iOS is unsafe. Good thing I’m using an even less safe platform.”

Given that 2 platforms are dominating the mobile world. I am not surprised.

Nothing is safe from hackers. It will get worse too. With iOS dominating the market the hackers will aim their attacks on the platform.

True words my dude.

27. engineer-1701d unregistered

true minus the dominating the market part they hare slowing down hacks on android and turning attention to apple since its so safe no onbe needs anti-mal and virus apps. leaving all of them open for easy attack, think midevil days no need to climb the wall or dig under whenthe gates open and the wall is 5 foot high

The App Store is dominating Android, WP and Blackberry combined in terms of revenue. I'm not sure in terms of downloads but definitely in revenue.

Which has zero to do with the topic.

I don't wanna be "That Guy" and I'm genuinely not wanting to cause arguments or anything, but I don't think iOS are dominating the market, certainly not the global one, they're at about 15% based on Q2 2015 Now if you're refering to a specific region's market, I couldn't really say what the number are.

It kind of depends on how you define the "market". In terms of marketshare or downloads, then yup, Android is the dominant force. If we're talking about app store revenue though, then iOS is the dominant force.

Yes, but revenue doesn't dominate a market. Share does.

iOS is definitely dominating the market for rich people and hackers would obviously prefer the rich people as target.
