Zombie botnet targets iPhone buyers

Would-be iPhone owners are being targeted by a 7,500-strong zombie botnet, security experts have warned. PandaLabs said that buying an iPhone online could cost surfers a lot more than the advertised price if their computers become infected by the Aifone.A Trojan.

Users of an infected PC who try to buy an iPhone online will be taken to a false page that appears to be the official iPhone page. If the user tries to buy the phone from the spoof page, they will be giving their bank details to cyber-criminals. PandaLabs said that it has uncovered a special tool used by cyber-criminals to control the botnet.
