iPhone users targeted by a new iCloud phishing scam



Beware, if you receive a message in English, informing you that probably your iCloud account was disabled, with a link that does not contribute anything, you’re probably more lewd phishing object that we are in the Apple universe. Deletes the message and ignore it, all you want is to capture your passwords from your Apple ID and wreak havoc with it, probably the future is blackmail in exchange for your information, or worse, everything is with the sole intention of unlocking an iOS device that has previously been stripped, so, in recent days warning before any unknown SMS.

Currently this event is taking place especially in iPhone holders in the UK, yet we have not found this “strain” phishing Iberian territory, but you never know. The intention is to get your personal information only accessing your iCloud account, where you probably have compromising pictures or sensitive data, as happened already with the CelebGate, in which, the mechanism was more or less the same. Posing as the Apple support but always doubt these messages, Apple will never contact you by these methods usually prefer email, and also verified.

Matt Prior, Your iCloud ID has been deactivated. To reactivate your account confirm your details here: icloudverify.co.uk – Apple.

What Apple never going to provide is a link to enter your account, simply remind you to do for yourself is a good way to differentiate a scam. Remember that the iTunes Store will never ask for personal or sensitive information by e-mail. If you are receiving these messages or some different but equally suspicious, you can tell Apple in abuse@icloud.com or iMessage.spam@apple.com.
