iCloud/Apple ID Final Warning Scam

Tell your Mac users to be on the watch for this one. You receive an email purportedly from the ‘Apple & iCloud Support Team’ with a subject of ‘iCloud/Apple ID Final Warning‘ telling your that you haven’t reviewed and confirmed your Apple ID details. There’s a link to do this ‘validation’ which takes you to a bogus site where the bad guys hope you’ll actually enter your ID & password – effectively giving them your account.

Remind your users to stop and think before they click.

And did you know that a firewall with an active subscription can block many of these messages from even getting into your organization? Definitely worth considering if you are just using a plain old firewall. New technology in this area is surprising affordable and you can also get this functionality as a service for only a few dollars a month. Contact us if you’d like to learn more.

Everyone stay safe out there!
