Guys, I have received this SMS in name of apple which 'm sure apple does not authenticated the message. Should you receive a such SMS do NOT open the link!

"Sie wurden ausgewählt, um ein kostenloses Geschenk von Apple erhalten! Gehe und geben 4832 bis jetzt behaupten!"

    It's a scam. Apple does not give out free gifts. The scam is circulating in several languages.

    It's more likely phishing than malware.  Phishing attempts to trick you into revealing sensitive information, usually via a web form.  Malware actually installs malicious software on your computer or mobile device.  Malware that installs on an Apple device is rather scarce (unless, of course, you're running Windows on a Mac).
