Apple's approval of 'Jekyll' malware app reveal flaws in App Store review process - Page 2

As always it is 'one makes it into the news'. Their report was carefully crafted to upset Apple as little as possible, so if they all get to survive as a developer, then it bodes well for at least a little security monitoring.

I guess they'll have to settle for just being 100,000 times more secure than their competition.

 

No.  It's easy to do that. Apple just needs to download the app to a real device and test it extensively for few months instead of just doing static analysis.

It would appear that the mainstream media agrees with this assessment as there hasn't been a peep out of them.  That should be good news for those who believe that the mainstream media targets Apple unfairly.
