Malicious XCode (XCode ghost) attacks Appstore

XcodeGhost is a new iOS malware that arose from malicious versions of Xcode, Apple's tool for developing iOS and OS X apps. Chinese developers unknowingly compiled iOS apps using the modified Xcode IDE and distributed those infected apps through the App Store.

Apple advises that users should update the affected apps to fix the issue, noting that if a listed app is available on the App Store right now, it has already been updated. Apps not available are marked explicitly.
