iPhone 5 phishing scam, WWDC 2011 email

The Apple iPhone 5 was announced at the WWDC 2011, of course you would not fall for that complete rubbish we just type there. But a few unsuspected consumers received emails after the event from noreply@apple.com.

This is none other than an iPhone 5 phishing scam, WWDC 2011 email. The email title heading said “Finally The amazing iPhone 5. Now available in black edition,” and PCWorld reports the scam email also said it promises a bigger and better iPhone 5 with QWERTY keyboard.

The email suggests the iPhone 5 comes with features such as being slimmer, faster and sleeker, as well as transparent mode, bigger display, cloud integration, Shoot, edit, and share video like never before, it also said the Apple smartphone was called iPhone 5G S.

If you visit Graham Cluley of Sophos.com, he suggests you DO NOT click any links within the email, if you do you will entice malicious executable file called iphone5.gif.exe aka Troj/Zapchast-B” as a Trojan horse. This virus will only infect Windows users and NOT Apple users.

Please let us know here at iPhone Rumors if you received such emails, please be aware readers NO new iPhone was announced at WWDC.
