If I click on Continue, I am asked to enter my Apple ID password?

Is there a virus or a malware on my iPhone 4S?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Ars technica reports it's legit. Still – I'd wish to read a more elaborate answer than this comment and perhaps see some official cites on the topic. – koiyu May 8 '12 at 16:16
