The Apple iPad Attacked By New Virus

Apple iPad

Very little time has passed since the launch of the iPad and the guys over at BitDefender have already discovered a possible virus, disguised as an iTunes update.

The malware links arrive in the email claiming to offer “best performance, newer features and security”. If accessed, the virus goes into explore.exe and opens a backdoor, sending sensitive data to other terminals. BitDefender announced in a press release : ” Identified by BitDefender as Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY, the piece of malicious code inadvertently downloaded injects itself into the explorer.exe process and opens up a backdoor that allows unauthorized access and control over the system “.
