Scammers are distributing e-mails designed to trick iPad owners into
downloading software that they think is an iTunes update, but which
turns out to be malware that opens a back door on the computer,
researchers warned on Monday.
The e-mails have a subject line that says "iPad Software Update" and
offer a link to a Web page that looks like a legitimate iTunes download
page, according to BitDefender. Instead, the link installs malware
identified as Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY, according to the BitDefender blog.
