Phishing for iPhone Victims

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. The site then asks for the users email address, the serial number of their iPhone, the type of phone, the amount of storage space on the device and and the International Mobile Equipment Identity.

ZDnet has an interesting article on why the scammers might want that information. It can be accessed here
