Re: Ah but......

" Its one reason they are happy with the walled garden, its totally safe from the worlds nasties....." - if you read the article, it isn't an iOS virus. It is a Trojan in apps for OSX (a big Mac) that then compromises the big computer to look for tablets and such being connected, and they in turn are compromised by abusing, I presume, the update protocols. Clever stuff, but totally bypasses iOS, the walled garden, everything.
