Good news: Lookout can protect you from XcodeGhost

By Lookout

If you're an individual Lookout user running iOS 8 (or below) or an enterprise customer running any version of iOS, Lookout protects you from XcodeGhost by automatically detecting and alerting you to the offending app.
With roughly half of the iOS user base still running iOS 8, we're happy to be able to offer this protection to a large percentage of our users.
Unfortunately, due to limitations in iOS 9, we cannot currently protect individuals on the new operating system through our consumer app, but we are working to find a solution that will keep our users safe. If you are running iOS 9, here is a list of affected apps and what you should do.
Due to Apple’s enterprise app distribution approach, we can protect enterprise users of Lookout Mobile Threat Protection, regardless of which version of the OS they are running.
To download Lookout for consumer use, visit the app store.
To learn more about our Enterprise products, visit our Mobile Threat Protection page.

There's nothing on your app's App Store page that even remotely explains how it protects us from compromised apps. Also, the app was last updated on Aug 05 2015, preceeding the XcodeGhost announcements by more than a month. Please explain.
