Beware of this! Do not click anywhere on it if you are sent this e-mail! Who knows what it might do?

Did you hover to see if any links are real?
I got some spam yesterday with several links to my Apple ID. They were all normal email links. Of course, there was at least one URL that was mislabeled.

"Security Paches" would be a clue.

Indeed. I didn't see that at first.
