Hackers Launch Identity Theft Attack on Netflix Subscribers

Hackers Launch Identity Theft Attack on Netflix Subscribers”

Netflix users have been warned to be on the lookout for a phishing email scam that been targeting subscribers of the popular streaming service in an attempt to steal their credit card information. Roughly110 million Netflix subscribers have been targeted with the phishing emails, Deadline reports, asking them to update their account information. If the recipient clicks the link in the email they are taken to a fake Netflix page, that asks them to log in and then enter their personal information, including credit card details. Scammers can make their fake emails and bogus websites look pretty convincing, so it's always a good idea to check carefully that the email comes from the actual company domain and not a scammer. Netflix customers who receive this email are advised to abstain from filling out any information prompted by the website.

"Obviously we'd love to have you back, simply click restart your membership to update your details and continue to enjoy all the best TV shows and movies without interruption". Here you will be asked to input login details, your full name, date of birth and payment details. "One important thing to note is that the email's recipient appears as "no sender", plus the victim's name appears as "#name#", as shown in the screenshot.

In order to reduce your chances of being affected, Mr Marshall said filters for your inbox and a layered security system are vital to ensure you don't fall victim.
