Hacked site asked for user information including credit card details, name, date of birth and phone number.
Hackers have compromised the website of online game publisher EA Games, to host a phishing website seeking users to enter their Apple credentials.
The second screen has been put in place by hackers asking users to input personal information linked to their Apple accounts, such as credit card details.
An EA spokesperson noted: "Privacy and security are of the utmost importance to us, and we are currently investigating this report.
"We’ve taken immediate steps to disable any attempts to misuse EA domains," the spokesperson added.
According to Netcraft’s Paul Mutton, who exposed hackers attempts, he said that it was likely that a vulnerability in an online calendar application on the web server had been exploited by the hackers.
"The mere presence of old software can often provide sufficient incentive for a hacker to target one system over another, and to spend more time looking for additional vulnerabilities," Mutton added.
As soon as users entered their Apple ID and password on the bogus website, they would then be asked to confirm their name, date of birth, phone number and credit card details in addition to other information before being directed to the legal Apple ID website.
Earlier, there were also reports that EA’s servers had been hacked, which troubled users in logging on to online games and services.
