Palo Alto Networks News of the Week – September 19

Chad Berndtson


It was a busy week at Palo Alto Networks, which is why we’ve rounded up the week’s top news right here.

Unit 42 investigated a new malware XcodeGhost that modifies Xcode, infects Apple iOS apps and is seen in App Store. In fact, Unit 42 found that it infected more than 39 iOS apps, including WeChat, affecting hundreds of millions of users, and that the XcodeGhost attacker can phish passwords and open URLs though infected apps.

We announced Aperture, a new SaaS security offering based on technology we acquired from CirroSecure.
