iPhone 5 Malware Lure

Some believed that the "Think Different" ad campaign of Apple was grammatically incorrect. Not so. But here's a scam email that is way too incorrect:

Subject: Brand new iPhone 5 design

We are pleased to introduce you a piece of future. Take a look at the new iPhone's design here.

The link, of course, is not to any genuine Apple site (although the freshly-minted domain has "iphone5" in its name). It downloads a Windows executable...which is a piece alright, but not a piece of future.
