New Worm Poses as iTunes File

An initial signal indicating that Apple's success with iTunes may soon attract hackers has emerged, according to security firm Trend Micro. A new worm, WORM_OPANKI.Y, is circulating online. It poses as an iTunes file and is spreading using AOL Instant Messenger. While it does not affect Mac users, it does affect most breeds of the Windows OS. The worm poses as a file named "iTunes.exe" in an attempt to trick users, "into thinking that this worm is associated with a legitimate product," Trend Micro warns.
