Spammers use iPad craze to spread malware

April 6, 2010
Opportunistic cybercriminals again are capitalizing on consumers' interest in the newly released Apple iPad to spread malware, according to internet security vendor SonicWALL. Researchers on Monday discovered a spam campaign propagating malicious emails, which appear to have been sent from a friend, inviting recipients to join a review group for the iPad. Clicking a link contained in the message causes malware to be downloaded that sends additional messages to individuals in an infected user's email contact list, according to SonicWALL. — AM
