Millions warned of Netflix Phishing scam

A phishing scam targeting millions of Netflix users is spreading across the internet this week directing customers to update the financial details of their accounts. The subject line is “Your suspension notification,” and the body of the email informs victims that their accounts have been suspended due to a billing issue.

The email directs recipients to click a link that redirects to a fake Netflix landing page. The fake landing page directs victims to input their user information and billing details in an effort to harvest credentials.

COUNTERMEASURES:
. Do not use your work email to subscribe to commercial mailing lists.
. Exercise caution when accessing personal web mail from your work environment.
. Verify the sender’s email address from a trusted source
. Do not click on embedded hyperlinks in email messages

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
