re: Apple's App Store Distributes Corrupted Updates
Okay, so, stuff happens.

I can understand how there might be the occasional hiccup that breaks an app or app update - network transmissions being what they are, especially over a wireless network.

However, did ANYONE happen to look at the malware discussed? I was under the assumption that Apple had strict rules regarding what apps it published in the App Store and that those apps had to meet certain criteria. If someone can sneak something like this in under Apple's radar - what's next?
