GDPR-themed Phishing Emails Seek Password, Credit Card Details

According to researchers at cybersecurity firm Redscan, criminals have been circulating GDPR-related phishing emails to obtain sensitive information from their victims.

The scammers reportedly send emails, with some claiming to be from AirBnb, which ask their victims to click a link to accept a new privacy policy and enter information such as account credentials and payment information to comply with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is set to take effect on May 25.

The researchers noted that while Airbnb is indeed sending messages to users about GDPR, they contain far more detail and do not ask the users to enter any credentials.
