An EA Games server has been compromised by hackers and is now hosting a phishing site which targets Apple ID account holders.

The phishing site attempts to trick a victim into submitting his Apple ID and password. It then presents a second form which asks the victim to verify his full name, card number, expiration date, verification code, date of birth, phone number, mother's maiden name, plus other details that would be useful to a fraudster. After submitting these details, the victim is redirected to the legitimate Apple ID website at https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/

Sounds like a good one. I can't image a person adding all this, but the Nigeria scam started 14 years ago and is still suckering them in.
