Yeah I read this. And basically the scam installs maleware into your windows box using a fake (look-alike) Apple itunes webpage. The ipad itself stays maleware free.

Apple need to look into this because of the ipad/ipod/iphone halo effect. They need the ipad experience for windows users to just work to get them onto Macs.
