I just plugged my iPad into my Win 7 PC for the first time in a long time and it started backing up. Twice during this backup process, my McAfee triggered a detection and subsequent deletion of PWS-Zbot.gen.vv in my backup files. My iPad is not jailbroken, but I download a lot of documents and pdfs straight to my iPad and I do not know if this is a false trigger or whether something I have downloaded is a potential danger to any Windows device to which I sync or backup my iPad. Is there any way to tell which file is causing the issue from the crazy alphanumeric path or to scan the iPad for potentially dangerous files? The other discussions of trojans in this forum have concluded that since non-jailbroken apps are safe that the iPad itself is safe and that these are false triggers, but they did not discuss files downloaded through Safari.
Thank you for any help or advice you can offer!
