Phishing scam targets iTunes users

By Justin Mann on May 21, 2008, 1:45 PM
Modern-day phishers often chase the avenues they see as most likely to pay off, and the increasing popularity of iTunes has now made it (and iTunes users) a target. A new scam has been reported that is specific to the aforementioned app, though it follows the same basic methods that most other phishing scams use. The new scam urges people to fix issues with their iTunes account, luring them to a fake billing login page. They try to pilfer credit card numbers social security numbers and other sensitive information from unsuspecting people.

A savvy user is not going to be fooled by these obvious scams, but given the mass appeal of iTunes it seems likely that many people will.
