Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Just yesterday I got a phising email "Your paypal account information needs to be updated" We have attached a document with all the infromation needed to update your account.
FYI, Any Paypal emails will include you being addressed by your name, regardless and I know this is a little off topic but I make it a habit with any emails having to do with Paypal I will call them first even if I'm certian their legit before I do anything else.
And we all know to NEVER open an attachment your not 100% positive you know who sent it or were expecting one.
In this case it appears that Apple iTunes had been hacked but they had to get their itunes information somewhere.(Facebook )
Vigilance constant Vigilance regarding any of your payment transaction accounts. My 2 cents worth. Fabe
