Hackers have been using the hype surrounding the iPhone 5. Emails have been sent out that give supposed information about an iPhone 5GS. These emails actually contain malware that has been infecting windows based PCs.
This type of attack preys on the natural human curiosity, that is boosted to new levels when presented with something new and exciting that they just “must” learn about. To make this threat worse yet, the emails look very legitimate. They look as if they came right off the Apple website. However the silver lining is that the virus in the emails is one that most anti-Virus programs will be able to handle with little problem.
moral of the story, watch what emails you open.
