Apple Caught Distributing Windows Worm

Apple Caught Distributing Windows Worm

Steve Job’s empire was caught delivering malware packages to Windows users who happen to run its clunky iTunes app. The experts point out that the malware writers are starting to see the superior security of Apple as a great way to get an open goal at tougher Windows software.

The industry experts played it down insisting that it’s a low-threat malware package which won’t affect the iOS or the MacOS platform. Nevertheless, the malware appeared to be the kiss of death to people who manage the app in their iTunes accounts on Windows computers. This means that it was designed to bypass Windows security by piggy backing onto Apple’s system.

The malware in question is installed in the free “Instaquotes Quotes Cards for Instagram” application from the iTunes store. The security experts defined the software as the “Worm.VB-900” malware and described it as “Mal/CoiDung-A” – a worm written in Visual Basic, which installs files within the Windows system directory. However, Vole’s Security Essentials is able to instantly detect the executables as malware and delete it. This is of no surprise, because the malware seems to be rather elderly one, just getting a new outing by using Apple’s iTunes as a way of delivery. Although it is really detectable, a lot of users might ignore the warnings from their anti-virus systems due to belief that Apple is too careful about allowing malware in its walled garden of delights.

On the other hand, it might also appear a dry run for a much more serious malware strike later on. Indeed, if Windows users downloaded the malware, it indicates that Apple’s iTunes does make a good attack vector.

In the meantime, Apple has already removed the offending from its App Store, so it is now unavailable for download either through iTunes or directly on an iOS device.

skreamer avatarAh ha! I was reading this wondering if people had been using third party sites for their itunes. What a lula of an ending! It was on Apples own Apps Store!

Now I wonder if my copy of Safari could also be a vector.

williebk avatarI never use iTunes anyway. Yes, Apple sucks and way to proprietary. My I7 PC beat Apple PC in any category. By the way, I rather get my MP3's by torrent then giving my money to the Apple store
