Do not give your Apple ID attackers

Forewarned is forearmed, and when it comes to information security, this phrase becomes even more relevant. This time the owners of Apple gadgets can be subjected to a phishing attack by fraud, but there is a way to guard against that.

The new threat drew attention in your corporate blog ESET is the developer of antivirus software. According to her, the scammers are sending on behalf of the Apple support message about the virus in the database, iTunes, where I ask you to confirm personal information and Bank details.

Advanced users are unlikely to fall for that, but unfamiliar with these situations may seem very plausible. The worst thing is that the link in the email leads to a fake website, which mimics an official Apple ID page. And if you enter their data there, you can say goodbye to not only your account but also by credit card.

According to experts, the attack takes on a mass character. Understand that few of you will go for it, but I advise you to warn friends and relatives that may inadvertently transmit their data to fraudsters.

We remind you that Apple will never send out such letters. Do not share the data Apple ID and your Bank card.
