Apple Strikes Back After Application Hack

After an app store hack attack, Apple now says it will let customers know, which apps to scrap.

FOX News Radio’s Gurnal Scott reports:

Apple has already taken some of the 25 tainted apps out of their app store.  These are apps that software developers in China, according to Apple executives, got tricked into using that introduced malware into several downloads.

The danger is that malware can extract personal information from devices and upload it to outside servers.  To date, Apple says it knows of no current information that has been compromised.  Apple plans to offer downloadable online tool kits to protect devices.  Cyber security experts say this episode reiterates that no system is immune to attack.
