Phishers are now targeting Netflix users, and the effects could get ugly.

Netflix users are being duped into a phony webpage that looks exactly like the Netflix login. According to The Huffington Post, when a user enters their account information, the scam site claims that the user’s Netflix account has been suspended due to “unusual activity” and then provides a fake customer service number.

After calling the fake number, the user is then alerted by the customer service rep that they have to download phony support software. The software involves a remote login that gives the scammers complete access to your computer. From there, it’s open season on your personal information.

Check out the video below of Malware expert, Jérôme Segura and his encounter with the rogue site.
