(Newser) – An iTunes gift voucher scam is doing the rounds just in time for Black Friday. Users receive an email saying they have been awarded $50 of iTunes credit which they can access by using a security code in an attached file, the BBC reports. The file actually contains malware which opens up the user's computer to hackers, allowing them to grab passwords.
