XcodeGhost iOS virus and what you need to know

A couple of weeks ago, it was discovered that some apps in the iOS app store had been infected by a virus called XcodeGhost. Information Technology Services has discovered some infected iOS devices (iPhone, iPad) on the K-State network. As these devices are identified, their access to the K-State wireless network is being blocked. If your IOS device has been blocked, go to the IT Help Desk in 214 Hale Library so that they can assist you in cleaning your device and requesting the network block be removed.

Apple has removed the infected apps from the App Store, but some of these apps may still be installed on iOS devices. For more information, see Apple’s XcodeGhost Q&A (Chinese version).
