Public Service Announcement: Fake Apple Billing Info Emails

This is the first post in a series called Public Service Announcements.  My goal is to help you be aware of threats in the world of technology.

Many of the people that I know have an iTunes account connected to one of their various Apple devices.

The Mac Security Blog is reporting that in the past few days a vast phishing attack has broken out, with e-mails being sent with the subject "Apple update your Billing Information".

The messages claim to come from "appleid@id.apple.com.

An example of the email can be found below.

If you click on the link in the message it will take you to a webpage that looks legitimate but it is not. 

Check out the blog post over at Mac Security Blog to learn more how to protect yourself from these types of attacks!
