Peculiar iphone scam.

Cara Garretson of NetworkWorld reports in PC world about a peculiar scam related to iphones. Apparently, when a user searches to buy iphones, the user is misdirected to a phony itunes store like website. The website records the users financial information. The article tells us that there are presently about 7500 affected computers affected by this bug. There are no remodies or cures specified in the article. Looks like apple, AT&T aren't the only ones who are making money out of this iphone buzz. Quite ingenious hoax, I must say.

Time to turn on the internet explorer's phising filters on, I suppose.
