Windows Malware Found in iOS App Store

App-Store1

Some Windows malware snuck its way onto the iOS App Store, reports say. This sounds like a new way to attack computers for us. Luckily, it was detected, and the malware is nothing that won’t be spotted by most anti-virus programs.

The bug is no threat to iOS or OS X, so they won’t have to worry about anything. The software they downloaded was an App called “Instaquotes Quotes Cards for Instagram.” His antivirus tool flagged the malware, and it was later confirmed by CNET that it was in fact malware. The malware is known as Worm/VB.LY.24 (Worm.VB-900).
