Beware of Fake iTune Gift Card scam.

If you are accessing iTunes on a PC beware of an iTunes Gift Card scam that is going around on Black Friday (Nov. 25th, 2011). The scam comes as an e-mail with the subject of "iTunes Gift Certificate" and offers a free $50.00 iTune gift card to unsuspecting PC users. The catch is that users will have to download a .zip attachment to get the certificate. The download is actually the: BredoZp-B malware. I have not heard what the virus does to the system, but it's never a good thing. You can find out more about it here. Be cautious this holiday season. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This malware effects Windows PC only, so if you are using a Mac, this doesn't apply to you. But, that doesn't mean that Mac users shouldn't be using anti-virus software! Protect your Mac now, before it becomes a problem.
