Btw, I realize this affects Windows OS, but still...
Before people get all into this, the malware described in this article does not affect an Apple product.
It has no more to do with the security of an iPad than your bank security is to blame when an e-mail pretends to be from your bank and asks you to download a virus to access your account balance from your smartphone.

No, there is no recorded virus. This requires the user to click on something and install something.
[citation][nom]elel[/nom]Wait a minute - as I read this, an ipad social engineering exploit installs a virus onto your windows computer. That's just not fair![/citation]
Probably a story for the conspiracy theorists to think this was all Apple's doing to get more people to switch to a mac.
