    Incomplete sentence: "Understated, considering this is the first piece of malware found in the iOS App Store during 5 years existence."

    I would use this: "Understated, considering this is the first piece of malware found in the iOS App Store during its 5 year existence." but this would also work: "Understated, considering this is the first piece of malware found in the iOS App Store during 5 years of existence."

    Impossible. Apple devices don't get viruses are built to be safe.

    When a full stop falls within quotations there is no need to use another afterwards.

    I wonder what negative impact this will have on other apps that have similar names. Hopefully apps like ReadAndCall and others which are good don't receive unwarranted negative reactions. Many developers work hard to produce good Apps and one bad "apple" can ruin countless hours of good work.

    Re: News - First Apple App Store malware detected

    I'm hoping you knowledgeable people can tell me what this nasty little pop up is I get every once and again when web browsing on my iPad that claims to have found a virus as it puts it "on my device" and looks comically like a windows popup and asks if it can preform a scan.

    I've also come across this on my android handset on both accounts I had pop-ups disabled by default each time I simply press't the home button and empted cookies and website data.
    Can it be defined or is it simply an obnoxiousness pop-up? that some how able to by-bass my settings.

    "The Find and Call app has an associated web site that allows users to enter social network account details, IM logins, email addresses and even use your PayPal account with which to “credit your account”. "

    Apple have also changed their claims on being immune to viruses on the Macbook . Now it says something about being better protected.
