'A WhatsApp phishing scheme designed to steal the details of Spotify accounts has been revealed in Spain.
Spanish users of the messaging service reported receiving a WhatApp message purportedly containing a URL for a one-year free subscription to Spotify Premium, the ad-free version of the popular music streaming service.
After clicking the link, oblivious users were directed to a page bearing the Spotify logo, the service’s font as well as its green and black color scheme. There, they were asked a series of questions before being asked to log into the platform.
"The real risk of this attack is that these cybercriminals will sell all these accounts on the black market," warns Luis Corrons, Technical Director of PandaLabs, the anti-malware service run by Spanish IT firm Panda Security.
It is not yet known how many people have been affected by the scheme. Spanish police issued a warning Wednesday. Writing on Twitter, the authorities said: “This is going on the playlist of the hottest scams.”'
