Cyber criminals are stealing user's login credentials for popular online streaming service, Netflix, in an attempt to steal banking information, according to recent research by Symantec.

 

The security vendor has discovered multiple malicious campaigns directly associated with Netflix.

 

One malware campaign involves malicious files posing as Netflix software on compromised computers desktops. The files are downloaders that, once executed, open the Netflix home page as a decoy whilst downloading Banload, a Trojan primarily used in Brazil, that steals banking information.

 

Another campaign involves the phishing of Netflix credentials. The streaming service allows between one and four users on the same account, meaning that an attack can piggyback on a user’s subscription without their knowledge.
