I stupidly opened a starbucks coupon on my iPhone supposedly from AT&T. I usually am not this stupid, but I don't know what I was thinking.. Just woke up and not paying attention. I must have really wanted that coffee. Anyway I clicked on a link to download the coupon and a message came up that said something about my ip address having to many downloads at this time. I then realized what I had done and deleted the email. I got on my Mac computer and changed all my passwords for my email accounts. I am worried, because I have an online banking app and also firebox with all of my passwords. Will this allow anyone to get into these? Do I need to change my iTunes passwords as well? My iPhone 6 is not jailbroken. I backed it up and restored it again. I am running iOS 8.0.2

I doubt there's anything to worry about. Were you in a Starbucks at the time? If so, the email may have been legit.

Maybe you SHOULD have that coffee to relax..:) So you clicked on a link on your iPhone and it indicated that it didn't succeed, how did you then make the leap to figure that your Mac was in trouble or any of your accounts?

Being vigilant is fine, but also understand what is happening to avoid freaking out for no reason. And in this case, there is no reason to freak out since nothing happened..
