Phishing scam hits Netflix Featured

By

Netflix has been hit by a new zero-day phishing scam using fake Netflix branding, with security firm MailGuard warning that the popular global video streaming service has become a favourite vehicle for email fraudsters.

MailGuard says Netflix’ large customer base makes it a valuable target for brandjacking – cyber crime that exploits the trademarks of well-known companies to deceive victims.

“This sort of phishing scam allows cybercriminals to harvest victim’s credit card credentials,” MailGuard says.

“The phishing page is designed to operate like a legitimate login portal. It asks for card details and password verification, and then ejects the scam victim to a real Netflix page to allay suspicion.”

MailGuard says unprotected inboxes will be affected today.

“Please exercise caution if you are not a MailGuard customer,” the security firm says, noting that this new round of phishing emails follows the Netflix branded scam it broke in November last year.  

“Phishing can be enormously costly and destructive, and new scams are appearing every day. Don’t wait until it happens to your business; take action to protect your company from financial and reputational damage, now.”
