Someone has been disparaging the iPad for sordid profit. BitDefender sent out a press release yesterday, entitled 'Warning on early iPad virus'. The release went on to state that BitDefender managed to find the first evidence of this virus. For a few minutes, everyone was duly impressed.

Then we realized it was all bull. PC Advisor reports that the so-called virus is nothing but a Windows scam that attempts to trick iPad owners to download an iTunes update for the iPad, using their Windows computer. If you DO download an “update” from the scam site, you'll find your Windows computer loaded down with malware.

While this is clearly a problem, it has nothing to do with the actual iPad itself. BitDefender clearly claimed that the issue was with the iPad. This should stand as evidence that no press release can ever be fully trusted. Shame on BitDefender for trying to piggyback on the iPad's fame with scare tactics.
