iPhone app can alert you if your device gets hâckêd

  1. A new app dubbed System and Security Info will scope out your iPhone for potential security threats.
    Worried that your iPhone may have been hâckêd? There's an app for that.

    Please or Register to view links, which debuted over the weekend in Apple's App Store, provides a host of details about your iPhone. The app shows your CPU, memory and disk usage as well as a list of all running processes. On the security front, it can tell you if your device has been compromised or possibly infected by any malware.

    Much of the information in the app is basic and easy to understand. A green light next to a specific item is good, as it means you're in the clear. A red light means there could be a potential security issue.

    My iPhone received a clean bill of health, according to the app, meaning no jailbreaks or compromises. The only red flag came up under anomalies, which found injected libraries. However, Esser pointed to that as normal, saying that "because the accessibility features of iOS will inject unexpected libraries into our process, the app will mention this as a detected anomaly."

    Esser promised a series of upcoming blog posts to further explain how the app works and what it means if it detects any issues on your iPhone.
