In this case, customers of the bank Spuerkeess are targeted.
The phishing SMS (smishing) leads the user to believe that they lneed to update their account, and by clicking on the link the user is first redirected to a fake page where they have to solve a captcha.
After that, they are redirected to a fake Snet.lu page, where they have to enter their bank credentials.
PreventionIf you are uncertain about the authenticity of an email, do not hesitate to contact the entity that seems to have sent you the email using a safe communication manner, using the phone for example (no phone number from the untrusted email must be used in order to verify the authenticity).
