June 18, 2018Netflix Phishing
Another day, another phishing attempt.
This one is pretty run-of-the mill, but it attacks accounts held by lots of potential recipients. Unlike a phishing email I received yesterday targeting the comparatively tiny Bethpage Federal Credit Union, this Netflix attack would be much more likely to attract recipients in a massive scattershot mailing (which most phishing attempts are).
Here's the message:
Although the message doesn't look very Netflixy to my eye, it has just enough polish to fool plenty, despite a couple of grammar/punctuation problems. Two main giveaways to the smell of this one are: 1) the From: email address (netflox.co!); and 2) rolling over the Update Account Details button shows a link to a domain that doesn't look anything related to Netflix.
As always, if you have even a tinge of concern about your account, visit the site via a previously saved bookmark, and log in like you normally do (you may be automatically logged into Netflix of you visit frequently enough). If there is a genuine problem with your account, you'll learn about it then.Posted on June 18, 2018 at 03:12 PM
