ESET antivirus experts have discovered a fraudulent scheme aimed at obtaining personal data and access to bank accounts of Apple users, Report informs citing RIA Novosti.
After users entered the e-mail and password from their personal account, a notification appeared on the screen that the card associated with the Apple ID was blocked. Then the users were asked to "confirm the data" - that is all personal information and bank card details. ESET experts believe that the purpose is to obtain personal data, as well as access to user bank accounts.
ESET experts recommend users to pay attention to the details of the letter - the sender’s email address, signature, contact the recipient, do not click on suspicious links, even if they allegedly came from a company that you are familiar with, check the site’s URL and the SSL certificate. Do not enter personal and payment information in the forms that you got when you clicked on the link from the letter, and also use reliable anti-virus solutions with anti-phishing and anti-spam functions.
