Researchers at the company, “Kaspersky” for electronic security systems, have discovered a group of phishing attacks that exploit a malicious website disguising the “Netflix” Arabic page as a phishing destination.

And she said, “It is possible to guess the ways in which fraudsters will exploit the login data for (Netflix) accounts that they collect through such attacks, and that they are harmful and disruptive.
She added: “This data can be sold online, if the user has a pre-paid subscription, or used later to add credibility to malicious schemes via e-mail, such as asking users to pay money for account recovery, and even extortion.”
Sherpakova called for the necessity to avoid entering login data when it is not certain that the website is real, and if this is done on a fake page, the password should be changed immediately, and you should contact the bank or any payment service provider if you suspect that the card details have been exposed.

She indicated the importance of making sure to use strong and different passwords for each account, and adopting the two-factor authentication method.
It is noteworthy that “Netflix” has a number of measures in place to protect user accounts, including a dedicated support page that helps identify and deal with suspicious communications.
