Jail Broke iOS Devices Vulnerable to New Malware Attack

Ars Technica has a report about a new vulnerability (unflod app) that has been discovered to effect certain jail-broken iOS devices.  Currently only 32 bit devices have been found to be infected.  That means that iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad Mini with Retina are currently okay. Once the malware is on the device, it intercepts your Apple login and password credentials. 

Although the code has been found, the delivery mechanism has not.  Since it can’t be determined how devices were initially infected with the malware, it is recommended that infected devices be restored to the factory software.
