How to check if your iPhone is affected with malware? Yesterday, the creator of one of the most famous applications for iOS which is Cydia, said that a few iPhones were affected by a malware called Unfold Baby Panda. This was noticed on iPhones that started to become slow and unresponsive. The good news is that it doesn’t affect iPhones that are stock. In other words, all devices that are running non jailbroken iOS 7 are safe.
This is also the reason why you can check your iOS device for malware only if it is jailbroken. Note that at the moment only a few devices are affected so there is a big chance you re already safe. But if you want to be completely calm knowing that your device is safe, follow the guide below.
Check your iPhone for Unflod Baby Panda:
- First of all, you need to install a file manager such as iFile if you haven’t already installed it.
- Then, go to Library > MobileSubstrate and open DynamicLibraries folder.
- Inside this folder look for two files named Unflod.dylib and Unflod.plist.
- If you find them, that means your phone is affected. Make sure to delete all the files.
- After you have deleted the affected files, go ahead and change your Apple ID password just in case.
Here you go. Hopefully your iPhone has not been affected by Unfold Baby Panda Malware.
