Think your company is immune to online security risks? Think again. On September 20, Apple’s App Store experienced its first major online attack. The hack was revealed after several major technology firms reported finding malicious code embedded within hundreds of apps in the App Store. Since these reports have surfaced, the company has been grappling to remove the malicious iPhone and iPad apps from its popular mobile software outlet.
While Apple has promised that the malware found in the apps presents limited threats to iPhone and iPad users in terms of data theft, the security breach should not be taken lightly. It just goes to show that even the most powerful companies are vulnerable to security breaches.
