'Convincing' email scam is targeting millions of Netflix subscribers

A Netflix email scam has targeted millions of subscribers worldwide. Mailguard noticed the malicious emails last week and posted a warning to its website.

Deadline shared a copy of one of the emails, and it looks professionally done and the email is personalized, which obviously makes subscribers think it's from Netflix, although it's not from a Netflix email address. The Netflix email scam, which is designed neatly to look authentic, informs the customers that their account will be canceled unless they 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.

There's going to be a lot more scams like this with Netflix growing stronger - sure the streaming service provider might have had a lot in debt but the company's stock hit an all-time high earlier this year and it's likely that scammers are going to see this as another way to get an easy buck.

Lebanese prime minister Hariri resigns
Rafik al-Hariri was killed in a 2005 Beirut bomb attack that pushed his son Saad into politics and set off years of turmoil. He was elected after Mr Hariri endorsed him for president, based on an agreement that he would make him as prime minister.

The fake Netflix site this scam is using is built on a compromised Wordpress blog.

Australian cybersecurity company MailGuard was the first to detect the fake email, which is targeting more than 110 million Netflix customers around the world.

If you click that link, you're taken to what appears to be the Netflix login page, but it has a different URL. If they look suspicious or unfamiliar don't open them. Your business can be exposed to a wide variety of different vectors: through peripherals; USB devices; networks; attachments; etc. Security best practice recommends a layered defence strategy to protect users against web threats and malware.
