Cyber Security Breach: Phishing Site Steals Apple IDs

The hackers who took advantage of the EA server created a phishing site that attempted to steal Apple IDs from consumers. This site appeared legitimate, asking for the user’s Apple ID and password – as well as verification of name, phone number, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, credit card number, expiration date, verification code, and other information that could be used to steal the user’s identity. If the victim made it through the entire process, he or she was simply redirected to the actual Apple ID site, most likely never realizing the information had been stolen by a third party.
