A massive new security bug called Masque allows criminals to install fake applications onto your iPhone or Android device.  The attacks come from clicking links on infected or baited websites.  There are no warnings, and the applications install silently.  They replace familiar icons and programs such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype and others.  Once the fake apps are installed they can spy on you, capture your data, and take over control of your phone.  This is a very serious threat and there is no fix or protection yet.  It is generally thought that iPhones are extremely safe and cannot be hacked by drive by attacks, but this is the second major flaw to come out that shows that they definitely can.  If you believe your phone might have been compromised, call the experts at ExcalTech for help.
