Itunes and Apple account phishing attempt

Apple users who has apple account or itunes account, beware. As of yesterday, I received an email claiming to be from contact.support@apple.com, with subject Email Alert (Apple Store). If you hover your mouse over the link, the destination URL is

http://www.fundews.com//wp-content/maboot/store/update/store.apple.com-uk/store.apple.com.htm


which is very much different and dodgy site. The domain name fundews.com is never heard of. As this is a new attack, at least for me and my yahoo mail,  there is a chance that your ISP, which is responsible in filtering out web contents and translating URL's into web pages, hasn't yet filtered this link, so beware.

Screen shots on the attempted phishing attack below.

Message content, take note of the URL destination, will help if you zoom it at the bottom part of the window!


And the blocked destination URL. Thanks to openDNS!
