iOS security issue allows attackers to swap good apps for bad ones

2014/11/10

Securityweek - (International) Researchers with FireEye identified a new attack dubbed a Masque Attack that can allow attackers to replace a legitimate iOS app with a malicious one if both applications use the same bundle identifier. Victims targeted by the attack must be lured into installing the malicious app which can then be replaced by the malicious app on jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS devices.
