Just a matter of time before someone starts writing code targeted directly at iPads. When that day comes, I will scream with glee like a little girl. The iPad is an an abomination. Better tablets are already here, with more on the way. Repent, early adopters. Repent.

One of the few times I agree with you whole heartedly.
Virus/malware writers have employed social engineering methods to trick people into installing malware or divulging login information for a long time now. I’m not surprised to see that they are now targetting popular trends/devices with their malicious campaigns.

The other times being halfheartedly?
So, what the heck does the windows message have to do with the ipad? Why would they get a message from windows saying that their ipad needs an update? I must be missing something here.

My only gripe about Apple is the lack of anti-virus programs. At least I haven’t found any for Apple stuff.
