OSX/XcodeGhost is malware delivered as a compromised version of Apple's XCode Interactive Development Environment (IDE) to unsuspecting app developers. It secretly infects apps built with the IDE to spread malware to end user iOS and OS X devices. These malware apps are capable of spying on users and stealing user information [1].
