    Apple ID - New phishing email scam

    This is coming in straight from the source, The Mac Security Blog, of a well crafted e-mail in circulation, that asks you to provide Apple ID billing information, that has been released right around the Christmas Holidays, and obviously their intentions are not good.

    This has been quoted by The Mac Security Blog,
    "A vast phishing attack has broken out, beginning on or around Christmas day, with e-mails being sent with the subject “Apple update your Billing Information.” These well-crafted e-mails could fool many new Apple users, especially those who may have found an iPhone, iPod or iMac under their Christmas tree, and set up accounts with the iTunes Store or the Mac App Store for the first time. The messages claim to come from “appleid@id.apple.com.”
    Read on about this new phishing scam targeting Apple ID customers, and as always when not sure about the link, type it in the browser yourself.

    I feel bad for those who fall for these, giving their private info directly to the crooks.
