In the wake of the first major breach on its outlet for distributing iPhone and iPad software, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller told Chinese news site Sina.com that it will offer domestic downloads within China of its software for developing apps.
Hundreds of apps were embedded with malware and made their way onto the App Store after developers downloaded a compromised version of Xcode. They resorted to downloading Xcode from an unofficial server because of slow speeds downloading from Apple's official servers overseas.
Schiller said that Apple will list the top 25 compromised apps so that customers can delete and update them. Apple is not aware of any cases where tainted apps have been used to transit customer data.
