A new phishing attack attempts to acquire a users Apple ID information through a fake verification link. The email looks fairly genuine, and the verification link directs you to a near identical version of Apple’s sign-in page. Apple IDs are tied to iTunes, iCloud, email, and more Apple services making them a valuable target.

If you think that your account has been compromised, or you haven’t changed your Apple ID password in a while, you can change your password by following the instructions from Apple’s support page.

If you would like detailed information as to how this email was identified as a phishing attempt, you can view the source material from the Vulnerability Research Team’s post.

Don’t forget, Loyola will never send you an email containing a link to provide your username and password. As always, if you receive a suspicious email, forward it to datasecurity@luc.edu.
