iOS/AdThief

A nice analysis on the Virus Bulletin site by Axelle Apvrille of the surprisingly widespread malware iOS/AdThief (a.k.a. Spad, though I personally hate it when the malware author gets to choose the name of the threat): Paper: Inside the iOS/AdThief malware. Sparked by earlier research by Claud Xiao.

As good an argument for not jailbreaking your iGadget as I’ve come across to date.
