Apple mobile devices in China targeted by WireLurker malware

Jeremy Kirk | Nov. 7, 2014
Thousands of users may be infected with malware that collects data from an iOS device, Palo Alto Networks said.

Olson said Palo Alto Networks has been in contact with Apple in the last few days, which is now aware of WireLurker.

"There's no vulnerability here for them to patch, but they certainly want to be aware of malware and how it works," Olson said.

Apple could first revoke the enterprise digital certificate that WireLurker's creators are using, Olson said. The company could also issue an update to detect WireLurker in XProtect, Apple's antivirus engine, he said.
