Attackers have been disseminating phishing emails in the name of Netflix to fool unsuspecting recipients. The phishing emails claim there are issues with the recipients’ billing information and that their accounts have been suspended. The recipients are then asked to click a button to update their payment details. The button leads the recipients to Netflix phishing pages, where they are asked to key in their Netflix account credentials and payment information. After disclosing the information, the recipients are then directed to the original Netflix website.
