Cybercriminals targeted Star Wars fans in a recent phishing campaign designed to steal credit card data by enticing fans with an early movie screening. According to a NJ Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Cell alert, Kaspersky researchers revealed that this social engineering campaign used approximately 30 fake streaming sites, social media profiles masquerading as official movie accounts, and malicious files disguised as fake early release movie copies. The sites claim that the user must enter credit card data for registration purposes.
