Apple removes anti-virus software from the App Store, iOS 8 to make secure in the eyes of its users

Apparently, Apple does not want any anti-virus software informs the user that the latest version of its operating system, iOS 8.2 can be infected by malicious software.

Currently Apple began to be removed from the App Store specialized applications for the detection of computer viruses and unwanted programs. This is indicated by several factors. Startup Intego, the application developer VirusBarrier, reports that Apple has removed his application because of the misleading description of options. The developer took into account the comments of Apple, made the necessary changes, but the attempt to re-download the application was not successful.

According to Intego, a number of other anti-virus software developers are faced with a similar situation. Apparently, Apple simply does not want its users conceded the thought of potentially vulnerable iOS 8. Appendix VirusBarrier actually scans emails and files for cloud storage, and not the iOS-device, so it was very useful for users who understood its purpose. VirusBarrier users will continue to receive updates as long as the application will remain on the device, but it will be lost forever after resetting the system to the level of the factory settings.

On the question of security, breaking or malware infection is not “jailbroken” mobile Apple, owners Only install applications from the official store App Store, has not yet been fixed. However, recent users learned about the existence WireLurker, Masque Attack and X agent – they are able to infect not “jailbroken» iPhone if the owner tries to install third-party applications to bypass the App Store.
