    I've been stooged!

    With a fake Apple site.

    GAGH! I'm getting old, I didn't even clock what it was until I'd entered my bleedin' password!

    It wasn't an email from "secure@icloudsecurities.co.uk" telling you that your Apple ID is temporarily locked out was it?

    We had one, but instantly noticed it was fake due to the fact we haven't got an Apple ID linked to the email account it specified (and that at the bottom of the email, they've spelt Europe as Eurpoe.

    In fact if you do get one (as a colleague just now tested the link), please block the domain as it initially takes you to a fake apple page and if you type any details in, it records them (obviously) then tries to forward you to on to child pornography sites.

    It's actually quite a clever one, because if you check the rest of the links most of them go off to the correct apple pages - it's just the critical validate your ID one which is fake.
