    Oh look!
    Those experts just happen to be from companies trying to sell their wares.
    We've been there and done that, on a regular basis especially around Christmas, in the hope no doubt that people might be conned, into buying their overpriced and in the main unnecessary software.
    If Apple ever does suffer a major attack, it wont be these people we will take advice from, they've cried wolf too many times over the years.

    Apple kit is really becoming so much more popular now that it is no surprise that the villains and rogues will want a piece of the action.
    As long as you use the App Store for your downloads and not any old junk you find on the net you should be safe enough.
    As always, a little common sense goes a long way to protecting your data and kit.

    Apple's just wasted time removing a few hundred infected legitimate apps from their store in September.
    +++++
    The fake developer code “was posted by untrusted sources,” said Christine Monaghan, an Apple spokeswoman. “To protect our customers, we’ve removed the apps from the App Store that we know have been created with this counterfeit software.”
