HT4865: iCloud: iCloud security and privacy overview

Learn about iCloud: iCloud security and privacy overview

HT4865 I received an email from ICloud Security Center:  ICloud<infoel@apple.com> that said I needed to open up a website in the email to protect my computer from spyware.  The email is in very tiny font.  I am suspicious - how do I tell if it is legitimate?

This email was in very tiny font - is it a legitimate concern?  should I click on the link?
