Researchers at Palo Alto Networks have dubbed this infected compiler and the resulting malware XcodeGhost.

    But how the heck do the infected apps make it past Apple's screening process?

    And curious: I swear I read that Google can uninstall or disable apps on user's phones should they discover that an app in Google Play is infected with malware. Can Apple do something similar?

    They will be adding new checks somehow for sure after this.
