How is this different from <<ANY>> other redirect attack. Why is this a ".MAC Webmail phishing attack" ???

Is there anything special about .mac webmail that makes this kind of attack any easier? This is not some intuitive leap here...

I just don't want some ignorant reporter reading your message and thinking "oh my god, Apple's email service is full of holes!!!"
