It is a commonly known ideal that Apple products are all but impervious to viruses and malware attacks. For the most part this was true, but with all technology there is always room for human error. It was made known last week that there was a new threat known as “Masque Attack”. This attack allows the malware to imitate legitimate iOS apps.
The impact to a device that has downloaded an app that is part of the Masque Attack could include:
Just hearing this is enough to cause panic if you have an iOS device, but there are ways to prevent this from affecting you and your personal information. One way is to never download an app from a third party vendor, this would include the pop-up ads for apps that you get while browsing the internet. You should always download apps exclusively from the official stores such as iTunes. Another way is to pay attention to your device when downloading new apps. If your phone prompts you in any way, such as “untrusted app developer”, click “Don’t Trust” and uninstall the app from your device immediately.
