Beware Of Phishing Attack Targeted For Apple Customers

Mac security-software company Intego reported a Phishing attack on Apple Customers. The phishing attack has broken out on Christmas day. The Attacker sent an e-mails with the subject “Apple update your Billing Information.” These well-formatted e-mails could fool many Apple users, especially those who may have found a new iPhone, iPod or iMac from Santa(or from Parent!) and set up new iTunes Store account. We have screenshot of the mail and details below.

The messages claim to come from “appleid@id.apple.com.” And it looks like normal mail from Apple. If you click on the link in the message, you will be taken to a realistic looking sign-in page, then, after entering your Apple ID and password, you’ll be taken to a page asking you to update your account profile, notably entering your credit card information. Again, this page looks realistic, and many of the elements it contains are taken from Apple’s own web pages.

Guys at Intego posted in their blog details about this here. To be safe just dont click on the links on the mail. If you need to login to your Apple Store account type it in your browser.
