Computer bug infecting hundreds of Apple apps

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) - Hundreds of apps for the iPhone and iPad could be infected with a computer bug.

Cyber-security firm source DNA says a virus was found in a widely-used piece of networking software called AFNetWorking.

The bug, which could have infected as many as 1,000 iPhone and iPad applications, prevents the users from being able to properly use HTTPs.

That could make it easy for a hacker to trick the app into sending the un-encrypted date.

If apps you use are affected, stop using the application and wait for a new version to come out, or else you are putting your data at risk.
