Scammers target iPad users

Of late, one of the most talked about gadgets is iPad. It is estimated that over a million iPads are already sold till date. With such a huge customer base in short span coupled with ever increasing craze for the gadget, malware writers couldn’t have asked for better targets.

Malware writers are sending emails claiming that the iPad needs iTunes software update to be installed on their PC for best performance, newer features and security. The email contains malicious link which directs victim to a fake but perfect imitation of iTunes software download page. Once downloaded and run the malware injects itself into the explorer.exe process, to steal passwords and other valuable data.

Ironically, it’s the Windows PCs that are being targeted and not the iPad.
