Bitdefender IT security experts have reported a new fraudulent email campaign, claiming to be sent from well-known banks in order to persuade people to access links or download dangerous files, which can result in them losing money.
Messages that appear to come from Banca Transilvania, BCR, CEC Bank, ING, Raiffeisen Bank and UniCredit Bank are well-written and urge updating personal data, downloading account statements, confirming transactions, unlocking a temporarily suspended account or reactivating online payments with a card.
Last year, computer security specialists from Bitdefender identified similar e-mail campaigns.
