This evening, while working on the blog, a cry came from the other side of the couch. An iPod touch was thrust in my face and a wail of “What on earth is this?!”
I was surprised to see a popup window (of sorts) claiming that the PC was infected with spyware.
It seems a link was tapped that popped up the site. I cancelled the message and replicated the motions and low and behold it happened again.
I didn’t know this could happen on the iPod touch? I’m sure there is no Spyware by a malicious site like this ca pop up this message? I wonder what would have happened if I clicked ok… hmmmmm.
I still have the offending link in my email – comment if you want to try it yourself. See the attached pictures for the message and the site after you tap cancel.
