Beware the Latest Netflix Phishing Email  Print E-mail
Home Theater News General News
Written by Dick Ward   
Thursday, 23 December 2010

If you're a Netflix subscriber, keep an eye out for an email in your inbox saying "Your Account Has Been Suspended."  It may look like it's from Netflix, but it's not.

The email, which started going out earlier this month, is a phishing attempt.  Rather than directing you to your actual Netflix account, it takes you to a dummy site that looks like Netflix.  The site asks for your email and password as well as plenty of other personal information.

If you get this email, delete it immediately.  If you already clicked it, you'll want to jump on to Netflix and the rest of the sites you visit that use the same login and pass and change your password to something else.  You may also want to keep an eye out for suspicious charges on your cards in case they were able to access that information as well.
