Card Control: Umsatzantrag wurde nicht genehmigt (2023-12-14)
OverviewThreat actors collecting credit card credentials
Threat actors are using a Lufthansa Miles&More phishing theme to collect credit card credentials.
The phishing mail leads the user to believe that the e-mail was sent by Lufthansa Miles & More Credit Card Service
on behalf of the Deutschen Kreditbank AG (DKB).
The pretext to click on the link is that the user’s Miles&More account needs to be upgraded to support strong authentication.
Clicking on “Ihr Konto jetzt einrichten” takes the user to the landing page, asking for account credentials.
Next, a form asking for credit card credentials are shown, followed by a form requesting the smsTAN.
Note that both the the link and the sender of the e-mail are unrelated to Lufthansa Miles & More and DKB.
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).
If you are working for the Luxembourgish government or are using any of the GOVCERT.LU services, it is important to forward phishing emails to us (using Reporting an incident or the Outlook button). This will allow us to take down phishing websites and protect members of our constituency.
