XcodeGhost excitement

There has been lots of excitement over the iOS (and *according to Palo Alto, OS X) malware XcodeGhost. Or, to be precise, apps compromised by the counterfeit XcodeGhost object file. The Palo Alto article was unavailable for a while, but has lots of detail and has been updated as the story has developed. Qihoo360 claimed to have detected 344 compromised apps. Palo Alto asserts that this is the 6th instance of malware found on the App Store, citing LBTM, InstaStock, FindAndCall, Jekyll and FakeTor as earlier examples.
