The first Ipad virus?
by cm2gj - 1/17/12 9:41 AM
I downloaded an app from Apple Store in our Ipad2. <span>
<span>This app was intended to check Hotmail from an Icon, instead of browse to www.hotmail.com in Safari.
<span>The application downloaded without issue, installed and I was able to check email.
<span>Slow, I don't like it. App was removed in a minute.
<span>5 minutes later, I received an email in my company corporate email from my hotmail account with spam data. My wife received another spam email from my hotmail account as well.
<span>I inmediately changed my hotmail password and notice in the sent items folder tons of emails this Ipad app sent to all my hotmail contacts.
<span>Is this a virus? How Apple allow this in the Apple Store? I supose Apple engineers check all apps in Apple Store before allow users to download it.
<span> Is not Apple secure at all now?
