WireLurker takes aim at Macs iPhones

When it comes to mobile malware, the iPhone has been left mostly unscathed. That doesn t mean iOS isn t vulnerable to attack, though. Last fall, an attack making the rounds in China dubbed WireLurker used infected OS X apps to deliver malware that swiped personal data like call logs and contacts from both jailbroken and unmodified iPhones alike. Once WireLurker got onto your Mac, it would wait for you to connect an iPhone to your computer via USB. If it detected a jailbroken iPhone, it would look for specific apps for jailbroken phones and replace them with infected versions. On non jailbroken phones, it would deliver its payload using a feature that allows companies to install custom apps on their employees iPhones. Apple wasted no time and blocked WireLurker shortly after researchers uncovered the malware attacks.
