A new Phishing attack occurred last week through thousands of messages on WhatsApp. This report was made by the antivirus company Panda Security.
To carry out this attack, the attackers announced a marketing 'campaign' of the Rolex brand in celebration of its hundred years. In other words, it was a phishing scam to deceive and steal the data of the victims.
Interestingly, the company is neither celebrating its centenary nor the links directing to its website.
The link said "you have a chance to get a free Rolex", which led users to a phishing page.
Intending to have greater success, the menaces were in charge of making the false page as true as possible.
How did the victims fall for this deception?
