    What if that app is bought from the Apple App store?

    You aren't going to get a virus downloading an app from the MAS. There are no viruses in the wild for OS X or iOS 8.

    I don't think so. Apple App Store is a pretty safe place to download apps. You might get a virus from unofficial sites though.:cool:
