Hackers want your web logins, especially ones that have sensitive banking info, like your Apple ID. A fresh round of phishing attacks that ask for Apple IDs and passwords has surfaced.

“Phishers appear to have concentrated their fire on a relatively new target: Apple IDs,” according to Trend Micro. “In recent days, we’ve seen a spike in phishing sites that try to steal Apple IDs.”

Only 110 sites have been compromised by the same hack, but the sudden increase in Apple ID-related attacks caused Trend Micro to take notice. Most corrupt links come through spam email, which should always be treated with extreme caution.

Now would be as good a time as any to enable two-step authentication for your Apple account. And make sure a webpage is really from Apple before you enter any login information.
