WireLurker OS X and iOS malware

[Update: added link to Virus Bulletin blog]

I’m guessing that the current spike in views of this site is related to the media fuss about Wirelurker which has (potentially) affected OS X users and iOS users, even those who don’t jailbreak their iGadgets. I’m tied up with family issues right now, so not really commenting, but here are some reasonably reliable places to get more information. HT to Artem Baranov for the first two links: in particular, I recommend you read the Threatpost article before flying into a panic.

The following articles may be useful for further links and snippets:

Keep watching for further info on AV vendor sites. I’d expect Intego and Sophos to comment fairly soon, though I’m not in their confidence. 🙂
