If your bank account is in the State Bank of India, then Chinese hackers can harm you, and you are their target. Phishing attacks have increased rapidly in the past few months, and scammers are trying new ways to cheat account holders. A scam, especially involving the State Bank of India (SBI) customers, has now come to the fore, and hackers are trying to transfer money from their accounts.
How are Chinese hackers doing scams?
Reports have revealed that Chinese hackers target SBI customers with the help of a particular type of phishing scam. In this, the victim is asked to update her ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) details. In many cases, hackers are also sending messages to SBI customers about getting gifts on updating KYC details. Keep in mind, trusting any such message can make you a victim of fraud.
Delhi-based think-tank Cyberpeace Foundation and Autobot InfoSec have come together to find a new hacking threat. There are two ways in which hackers are targeting SBI customers. The first method is based on sending an SMS to the account holders and clicking on the link given in the message. At the same time, in another way, hackers are redirecting customers to a fake page by changing the URL of the bank’s official website.
