Give credit where credit is due but we have received this great Apple Phishing solicitation. It reads: Dear customer, You’ve placed your Apple ID under the risk of termination by not keeping your information up to date. To complete the process, we just need to verify your information. Simply click the link below and sign in using your Apple ID and password to start the process. It provides a link “Verify Now” then continues: “Wondering why you got this email? When you don’t regularly update your Apple ID information, Apple will require you to sign in by following the link in a verification email and update your information. This is to help protect your identity and keep your account secure. For more information, see our frequently asked questions. Thanks, Apple Customer Support.
What is brilliant about this particular scam is that the return address in the email is to service@Apple.com and frequently asked questions link is to Apple.com. The Verify Now link, however, is to https://server45.host-argentina.com.ar/~pazfenor/administrator/Apple/WebObjects/iTunesConnect.html and the sign in page looks like this:
When you sign in the bad guys get your Id and can rack up what they want at the iTunes store.
Beware of links in unsolicited emails and always check the address before typing in information. Here is a description of “Phishing”
