Apple: Delete the following iPhone apps right away!

IPhone users are now required to delete the dangerous applications that you will see below. Researchers from Wandera's threat research team found that 17 applications in the Apple App Store were infected with something called "clicker trojan malware".

Wandera says: “The Trojan is a well-understood malware category that performs ad fraud by frequently linking to networks or sites advertisements, in order to artificially increase the number of visitors or generate revenue per click ”.

The applications will also slow down the performance of the phone and remove mobile data faster than usual. The research team found that all the applications were published by AppAspect Technologies Pvt Ltd, based in India.

None of these applications were found to contain malware.

AppAspect Technologies Pvt Ltd also has 28 applications in Google Play Store, but Wandera tested these applications and found them to be free of malware.

However, a report by Wandera states that "additional research found that AppAspect's Android apps had once been infected and removed from store. They have since been republished and do not appear to have built-in malicious functionality. ”
