Identity Thieves Target Phishing Attack On Users Interested In Cloud Computing

Interested in cloud computing? Want to store your files and documents in the "cloud?" Considering the Apple iCloud service? Identity thieves have adapted a phishing email for cloud computing services.

The good folks over at Sophos Naked Security blog reported a new email phishing attack which targeted at prospective Apple iCloud users:

"The email claims to come from Apple, and appears to have targeted our correspondent because he is a user of Apple's MobileMe service. Apple is planning to shut down its MobileMe service in mid-2012, as it is readying its new iCloud service (which will store music, photos, calendars, documents etc in 'the cloud' and wirelessly push them to all of your devices)."

Many consumers consider Apple products relatively immune to malware and phishing attacks. You have been warned. Be alert for phishing emails about cloud computing.
