Malware discovered in Apple App Store

Posted on Thursday, July 05 2012 @ 20:19:15 CEST by


Cyber security firm Kaspersky reports it has discovered the first piece of malware in Apple's App Store. The app, which is also found on Google's Play store, is called "Find and Call", it's designed to steal users' phonebooks and spam contacts. Full details at TechWeekEurope.
A malicious application has been found on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play, designed to steal users’ phonebooks and spam contacts.

According to Russian security giant Kaspersky, it marks the first time malware has been spotted on Apple’s iOS store, which has been largely unaffected by security problems since its launch five years ago.

If users download the ‘Find and Call’ app, the attackers spam all contacts with text messages containing a link to the application download page, as the malware seeks to propagate, Kaspersky discovered.

Spam messages claim to come from the original victim’s device, making it seem more legitimate and therefore making it more tempting to click on the link.
