New Scam Targets Apple Accounts

Trend Micro is reporting a new phishing campaign targeting Apple users is attempting to trick victims into updating their profiles under the guise it’s a part of proactive security program.

From the article:

“The phishing email looked like a legitimate email from Apple. It notified the “customer” that their account has been limited because of unusual activity, and then asked them to update payment details through a link. The email immediately raised suspicions for various reasons. It was sent to a person who was not using Apple products, and if there was suspicious activity why would a customer need to update payment details? Upon checking, we also saw that the button linked to a site that is not related to the Apple domain name.”
