Alert involving requests for mandatory update


Millennium bcp NEVER requests the installation/update of software by SMS/e-mail


We do alert you to a SMS supposedly sent by Millennium bcp requesting access to a link with the subject “Atualize agora o seu aplicativo BCP” as shown below.


Millennium bcp NEVER sends SMS with links

 
This is another case of phishing wherein, after the installation of the Malware, the purpose is the monitoring of your smartphone by strangers, allowing unauthorized remote access to your applications, files, SMS content (or even forwarding it without you even realizing it), as per the screens below:
 

Millennium bcp NEVER requests the installation of software


If you open the link and execute the file, please contact the Bank immediately to block the access codes.


The installation of the malware in the user’s equipment occurs after accessing the link of the fraudulent SMS and the following windows are displayed::

 

 

 

FRAUD

 

During the Malware installation process, the Millennium App access PIN is requested,
so that strangers can use your Millennium App:


FRAUD


It will be necessary to request the analysis and verification of your equipment by a specialized technician, for detection and removal of the Malware.

 

Both in the installation process and in the authorization of operations, Millennium bcp NEVER
asks for the full Multichannel code with 7 digits (or 3+4).
Please read carefully the contents of the text message sent by SMS
,
because when you provide an Authorisation Code you are confirming a transaction in your account
or the set-up of the Millennium App.


Pay attention to the deficient sentence structure, the spelling/grammatical errors,
and the variants of terms in Brazilian Portuguese in the texts presented, and we remind you that Millennium bcp:

 

NEVER requests the installation/update of software after access


NEVER requests Authorisation Codes for transactions simulation


NEVER requests the full Multichannel Access with the 7 digits (or 3 +4)
