39? BGR reported 89 apps, and considering that BGR is also a pro-Apple site, one can safely assume that is a conservative number. Apparently, the malicious code is being used by hundreds of developers.
Just goes to show you no OS is completely safe, common sense needs to prevail when installing any app, and more importantly, touting your ecosystem's superiority and claiming perfection can only induce a false sense of security, attitude far more dangerous than the actual infected apps.
On a funny note/twist, Nelson's "ha-ha!" seems the perfect end note for this article.

Developers using infected build of Xcode that was downloaded from a source other than Apple is the problem. Simply verify developers use verified copies of Xcode.
