Panic as Apple iPhone users are attacked by Windows penguins

What do you get if you mix Windows users with an Apple iPhone, stir well using some panicking penguins and decorate with a chunk of spam? The blindingly obvious answer is the latest Trojan attack, of course…
The iPhone itself is not totally immune from malware. Back in January reports circulated confirming the existence of 113 Prep.
This was not, it has to be said, the most cunningly clever bit of malware ever invented. Perhaps because the author, mucking around with some XML files when he built it, was only 11 years old.

Executing the ‘malicious’ app just reveals it to say ‘shoes’ and nothing else. Although deleting it does also deleted some files which in turn breaks some applications.
However, now we have the appearance of an iPhone Trojan that does not even run on the iPhone itself. Instead it is aimed squarely at iPhone using Windows users. Actually, let me rephrase that: it is aimed squarely at iPhone using Windows numpties.
After all, why would any intelligent person open an email claiming to be distributing a free iPhone game as an attachment? How stupid do you need to be to play the games a spammer sends you?
