Softpedia - (International) Security researchers from FireEye reported two Apple iOS flaws, dubbed Manifest Masque and Extension Masque, in which an attacker could break or replace system apps and extensions on an affected device by taking advantage of apps created in Xcode outside of Apple's App Store. The vulnerabilities behind Manifest Masque attacks were partially addressed in the release of iOS 8.4.
