Black Friday iTunes infected credit malware alert
BBC Online :
Criminals are targeting internet users with a new gift certificate scam, according to security experts.
Users receive an email that claims to be from Apple's iTunes store, warns the Eleven security blog.
The ZIP file attached contains malware that may allow hackers to gain access to the recipient's computer.
The blog says the attack appears to have been timed to coincide with Black Friday, one of the US's busiest shopping days.
Black Friday was the name used by Philadelphia's police department in the 1960s to describe the day after Thanksgiving because of all the traffic jams caused by people visiting the city's stores.
It is now viewed by many retailers as the start of the Christmas shopping season. They mark the day with one-off discounts and other special offers.
Eleven says the period has become one of the most popular times for internet scammers to target users.
