How iPhone Calendar spam works

If you have recently visited some websites with many pop-ups, you may start receiving the Calendar spam messages. These sorts of websites are often insinuated with code that redirects users to malicious web pages.

Whenever you visit a site contaminated with such code, you may experience a message identical to the ones below encouraging you to subscribe to a spam calendar.

Since you subscribe to it, your device will start to receive Calendar notifications. They will often appear every few minutes.

The notifications promote dangerous websites and most often have the following names or something similar:

  • Apple Support: You need to download protection
  • Your iPhone is severely damaged by viruses
  • You won an iPhone
  • Urgent: Your Data and Browsing Activity are exposed
  • Your Device May Be Infected
  • Virus Alert – Check protection
  • Your iCloud HACKED
  • System Critical Alert!
  • Your Tab May Be Damaged
  • Warning: Scan your device now!

If you were to click on one of the notifications, the website you would be led to would almost certainly be unrelated to the message in the Calendar notification.
