As always, hackers are busy trying to get you to download their latest virus and hopefully make some money from it somehow. This time they are targeting people that are using search engines to look up Apple’s iPad. When you type keywords like “Apple Tablet” and “Apple iPad rumor” into search engines, you will get spam results and the scary part is that these regular looking sites will install spyware and viruses unto your computer.
On its blog, Symantec, an Internet security company tested this out by Googling some iPad keywords and found that a bunch of the link on the first page were hacker’s infected websites. That being said, make sure you are careful when browsing around online and make sure that you have some sort of Internet security program installed on your computer at all times.
