Scammers are employing a new phishing attack targeting iPhone users. The attacks impersonate Apple.com and attempt to gather sensitive information from unsuspecting iPhone users and could be used for a variety of scams.
The emails generally highlight a ‘Free 1 Year Warranty Extension’ and route the user to a phishing website.
