AceDeciever is a new malware discovered by researchers that is able to embark on Fairplay Man-in the middle attacks when users purchase an application from the iTunes stores. Here to comment in this news in Tim Erlin, Director of IT Security and Risk Strategy for Tripwire.

Tim Erlin, Director of IT Security and Risk Strategy for Tripwire:

“The security of the App Store is a cornerstone of the Apple ecosystem, but the size and success of that ecosystem makes it a popular target for attacks.

Apple needs to ensure that Apps installed from their App Store are safe in order to maintain their customer base. Confidence is a key factor in customer retention.

This latest attack is reminiscent of the VW diesel hack that caused the exhaust system to perform differently when in a lab. In this case, the Aisi Helper behaved differently based on its location in order to bypass Apple’s security.”
