Hackers attack PCs using iTunes email offer

LONDON: Criminals are hacking into people's computers by sending a fake email which offers credit for iTunes music, games and video.

Users are told they have been sent 50 dollar worth of iTunes store credit and need to open an attached ZIP file to find out their certificate code.

According to the Eleven security blog, this attached file contains a malware program known as Mal/BredoZp-B which can allow hackers to gain access to the recipient's computer, the BBC reported.

It says the code may also slow down the infected computer's performance and make files disappear.
