Bad Apps Allow iPhone Hacks

Blog Post

Did you think your iPhones and iPads were unhackable? Think again.  Hackers can trick you into downloading a malicious app via a link on a website or even in a text messages.  The fake app can then overwrite an existing, trusted app on your phone, so that you unwittingly load it, leaving your information and even text and phone calls vulnerable to snooping.

As damaging as this may be, it's actually pretty easy to avoid.  Just make sure you don't load any apps that are not from the App Store, and if yiou are prompted to install something, just don't do it.
