The articles state that Apple has admitted its 'app store integrity was compromised,' but the company has declined to state how many bad apps it had uncovered; though, Qihoo360 Technology Co. says Apple has 344 apps tainted with XcodeGhost.

All because some coders used a non-official version of X-Code.

This will be a painful, but good learning experience for Apple.

Unrelated- I thought I had a phone-er-geist in my phone after updating to iOS9, turns out it was the touch screen just being wonky, occasionally registering touches on its own for no reason. It really did look like someone got into my phone, until the keyboard started typing gibberish. Maybe a 2yr-old hacked it. Apple replaced it as I bought it 363 days ago :)

I'd say this is a painful learning experience for all the app store developers who decided to cut corners too.

Not only have their apps been removed from the store, removing revenue streams for them, but now they're on the hook for lawsuits from affected customers, not to mention possible criminal charges arising from any criminal acts committed (an unwitting accomplice can still get charged as an accomplice).
