    Four computer security researchers from the Georgia Institute of
    Technology have demonstrated that they can create malicious apps
    that can avoid detection by Apple's app review process.

    In "Jekyll on iOS: When Benign Apps Become Evil", a paper
    presented at the Usenix Security '13 conference, Tielei Wang,
    Kangjie Lu, Long Lu, Simon Chung, and Wenke Lee describe how
    they were able to create apps that can be exploited remotely
    through program paths that did not exist during the app review
    process. The researchers call these "Jekyll apps," because they
    conceal their malicious side.
