Apple has published a document that answers some questions about the iOS malware XcodeGhost.

The questions it answers are:

  • I’ve heard about malicious apps created by XcodeGhost — what does this mean?
  • Why would a developer put customers at risk by downloading counterfeit software?
  • How does this affect me? How do I know if my device has been compromised?
  • Is it safe for me to download apps from App Store?

In addition, Apple has published a document reminding developers to use officially issued versions of its developer tools.
