Phishing Attack Aimed to Obtain Apple Users' Credit Card Information

The attack targeted people who received new Apple products during the holidays.

ReadWriteWeb: The week after Christmas someone launched a phishing attack attempting to steal credit card information from people signing up for a new Apple ID. Experts say the attackers timed the e-mails to target users who received new Apple products for the holidays.

The malicious e-mail tells users that their Apple billing information is out of date and appears to direct them to store.apple.com. In reality, clicking the link takes users to a malicious site that asks for users' Apple ID sign in information and credit card numbers.
