A new malware has been known to be infecting Apple iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads, even when the devices aren’t jailbroken.
The malware was first detected by Palo Alto Networks researcher Claud Xiao.
The newly discovered malware named AceDeceiver has been infecting iOS devices even when they have not been tampered with in any way, causing major concerns for Apple, as hackers are figuring out newer ways to get around Apple’s security measures.
While hackers who create such malware tend to target Android devices more than ones with other operating systems, the growing popularity of iPhones may be causing all of these new security concerns to arise for Apple.
The AceDeceiver was cleverly undermining Apple’s DRM to allow hackers to install harmful apps onto iOS devices, managing to completely bypass Apple’s in-built security measures.
