Netflix Payment / Subscription Issues.

Netflix Your Account is on hold – Update your payment information.

I don’t have Netflix, so like the FNB, Capitech, or Nedbank phishing scams, this one was very easy to spot. For those with Netflix accounts, the very first Red Flag is the email address. Is the email address Netflix or not bearing in mind Email headers can be spoofed to look like Netflix?

The second Red Flag is no Client ID or name. The email is addressed Hi or Dear….if you are not addressed by name or Client the email is phishing, prompting you to click on a phishing link that is masked by the HTML as a button, Retry Payment. This will redirect you to a fake Netflix website where you will input all your personal details including your banking and card payment details.

Convert the email to plain text, the HTML masking removed, and the phishing URL is exposed under the Retry Payment button, Unsubscribe, Help Desk, and Contact Us hyperlinks.

Use of mouse over hover to detect Phishing URLs. The Phishing URL is masked by HTML, in this case, Retry Payment or any call to action when in fact the URL is not Netflix but a malicious website attempting to steal personal information or to download a comprised file to your device.
