Apple app store hacked

This NY Times story details the story (here). It affects mostly Chinese apps, the hack was in developers toolkit.

Apple confirmed on Sunday that a tool used by software developers for the company’s devices was copied and modified by hackers to put bad code into apps available on the App Store.

Here's a link to a page with a list of infected apps.

Some apps were hacked, not the store itself.

Developers downloading the toolkit from some Chinese site and not from Apple - oops! (Turned out to be a modified (hacked) version of Apple developer toolkit)
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
