Another Netflix phishing campaign was seen in the wild prompting customers to update their login credentials or risk being locked out of their account. A similar scam occurred earlier this year.
Mailguard researchers described the email used in the scam as being relatively well designed and said the scammers are using a template system to generate individualized messages with specific recipient data, according to a Nov. 3 blog post.
While the body of the email is generic, the sender field is designed to show the name of the victim personalizing the message more so it seems more convincing. The emails subject line reads “Your suspension notification” and is addressed “Hi #name#.”
