Fraudulent emails

Last week, several Apple celebrity accounts were hacked and intimate photo's were leaked on to the web.  Just do a Google search for Apple Accounts Hacked and you will have news stories referring to the information leaks.

Well, it didn't take long before the latest email scam appears to have reared it's ugly head.  If you look at the image above, to the untrained eye, you could be mistaken for thinking that this is a security precaution on Apple's part to get user's to update their account passwords.

If you look closer at this image you will see I have highlighted the link that you would be taken to if you were to click the "Update Account Details". The link starts with secure1.store.apple which reads fine but then look at the part that is highlighted in red thelogocompany.net/login.html !

Are you vigilante enough?  Might you have overlooked this and accidentally visited the website that is pretending to be Apple's?

I visited the site using Google Chrome and was greeted with this message

I then visited the website again using Internet Explorer v9 and was greeted with this!
