Itunes adware?



It’s an older post, but I just discovered it…. July 21st… spware confidential reports on a virus masquerading as an itunes installer that actually brings along some adware (4 different applications) for fun. This apparently was distributed over the AIM messenger network.



With adware crossing the line into clearly illegal territory rather than just sneaky ads that encourage people to click on them and before you know it they’re downloading computer misery. It should make life easier for prosecuting though.
