Your next question might be, “what does Apple IPad have to do with search engine optimization?”

Well, due to a frenzy amount of searches for this product and relating key terms, Apple IPad searchers have become victim to black hat seo techniques leading them to malicious sites.

Symantec’s Candid Wueest warns, “This is just the kind of opportunity fraudsters like to exploit by poisoning search terms. IPad-related spam and phishing attacks hitting consumers hard over the coming weeks.”
