I received an email today purporting to be from iTunes with the following message:
You have received an iTunes Gift Certificate in the amount of $50.00 You can find your certificate code in attachment below.
Then you need to open iTunes. Once you verify your account, $50.00 will be credited to your account, so you can start buying music, games, video right away.
The attachment was a zipped file containing an exe file named iTunes_certificate_247.exe.
I scanned the file with Nod32 but it came up clear. To be on the safe side I Googled for 'iTunes gift certificate virus' and there were plenty of results on the subject, including click here which, interestingly, says that 'At the time of writing, 15 of the 41 AV engines did detect the trojan.'
Just thought I'd issue a warning... Edit/Delete Message
