A phishing scam is doing the rounds on the Internet, and is targeted towards users with Apple ID and iCloud account. Read on.
Users of Apple products are apparently receiving emails that claim to be from Apple support. The email urges users to complete their account verification, failing which their Apple ID and iCloud will be suspended.
The email also tries to convince the user by informing that the Apple Support had sent such notifications earlier, but they did not receive any response. There is a ‘Verify Now’ button in the email, clicking on which, will supposedly allow the user to complete the verification process for their Apple ID. But, what really happens is this.
Now, there might be some users (investigators) who might suspect the email to be a phishing attack and would like to test what happens if they proceed further. So, even if they provide false details in these fake pages, they will be automatically redirected to an adult website, which could be compromised and may infect the user’s system with a malware.
What should you do?
