Apple has erroneously been touted as "not able to get viruses" for many years, but now Apple themselves are pointing out that Malware has hit their mobile devices - as well as they Macbook. Trojans have been delivered via Apps for quite a while and now malware, Trojans and more can be delivered to your device (and propagated), simply by plugging into an affected device. This spreads as you plug in to other devices. Keep your USB stick to yourself and your USB ports closed.
What's more, it's the first that can infect iOS applications like a traditional virus, and even auto-generates infected software. Some 467 apps have been infected and downloaded over 350,000 times, and could have affected "hundreds of thousands" of users. And here's where the regional issue comes into play: the malware is hosted on Maiyadi, a Chinese, third-party app store.
