Apple’s policy change to allow the installation of local home brewed apps onto a non-jailbroken device using just an Apple ID is an absolute game changer! A new program called Su-A-Cyder is now out that can really hurt your IOS devices.

Su-A-Cyder can be described as a recipe that takes one part malicious code (choose your flavor), one part legitimate app (choose your victim), one part Apple ID (anonymous), and mix together to create a new evil client app that easily installs on a non-jailbroken device.

It seems with this that Apple devices are in trouble. Of course with the recent find of 100's of apps infected with malware in the Play Store that Android devices are no better. If you use mobile devices there are risks. We have focused on making things convenient but not secure and now its cpming back to bite us in our butts.
