Mac security specialist Intego has begun offering the first antivirus scanner
capable of inspecting Apple's much-hyped iPad, despite the questionable need for
security scans on the device.
The iPad, which Apple began selling in the US last weekend, runs on the same
operating system as the iPhone. Only jailbroken iPhones with default passwords
have ever been infected with malware and even then only by a handful of
high-profile worms, such as the Rickrolling worm in Australia and the D'oh bank
credential stealing worm in the Netherlands, which both spread last November.
