Technical Details

Known in the media as 'Unflod Baby Panda', Trojan:iPhoneOS/SSLCredsThief.A is a trojan that was first reported by reddit users and appears to target users of jailbroken iPhones. The source of the trojan is currently unknown, though analysis of the code appears to point to Chinese origins.

The malware itself is a library file named Unflod.dylib that's signed with an Apple-issued developer's signature. Once installed and running, the library hooks all running processes and listening to outgoing SSL connections in order to find and steal the device's Apple-ID; this information, as well as the corresponding password, is forwarded to a remote server. For more information, see:

SSLCredsThief.A only works on jailbroken iOS devices; unmodified devices are not affected.
