Apple's App Store has been hit by a first major attack, allegedly affecting more than 300 applications. It has been cleaning the App Store of the malicious program, XcodeGhost, which was found by several cyber security firms. The code has reportedly been affecting both iPhone and iPad programs. This program was embedded in a number of legitimate apps in the Store. Developers of these apps unknowingly added the code by using a 'tainted' version of Xcode, Apple’s software that is used to create apps for iOS and OS X.
