iTunes Phishing

I received this email this morning:







Notice that ‘Apple’ is misspelled, and the grammar is slightly weird.

This links to the following site:








… where it asks me to input my Apple ID and password. Presumably, at that point, they can use that to make purchases on my credit card. Assuming, of course, that I have an Apple account, which I don’t.

This type of attack is called “Phishing” and is the easiest and most effective Internet “hacking” technique, since it requires almost no talent, and relies on the trust (or gullibility) of the target.

If you receive an email like this, delete it. If you’re not sure, manually type in “” in your browser and see what information they have on your account.
