iOS Developer Site At Core of Facebook, Apple Watering Hole Attack 88

msm1267 writes "The missing link connecting the attacks against Apple, Facebook and possibly Twitter is a popular iOS mobile developers' forum called iphonedevsdk which was discovered hosting malware in an apparent watering hole attack that has likely snared victims at hundreds of organizations beyond the big three. It's not clear whether the site remains infected, but researcher Eric Romang dug into the situation and determined that the site was hosting malicious JavaScript that was redirecting visitors to another site, min.liveanalytics. That site had been hosting malware as of Jan. 15."

    The site in question has been hosting malware on and off for over a year now. They were flagged at least half a dozen times by google over the past year for hosting malware. The site then went down for weeks while overhauling the entire forum software and then bam, this happens. Unfortunately some very good discussions happen on the site and I just can't quit using it.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
