Warning - Fraudulent e-mails - Do not open links



We were informed, once again, that several customers and non-customers of Millennium bcp have been getting e-mails, supposedly sent by the Portuguese post office CTT with the subject "(nome), você tem uma pacote" [ "(name), you've got a package], stating that the company was unable to deliver a package.

Example of the e-mail sent:

 

It is one more case of Phishing by resorting to the installation of malware that adulterates the browsers when you access banking websites.

The link of the message: "DOWLOAD DE INFORMAÇÕES" gives access to a fictitious page of the CTT, from where  a file  "objeto.zip" is downloaded. This ZIP contains the malicious file that, after executed, installs  a malware.

When you try to open ind.millenniumbcp.pt and after entering the Username, a webpage opens and requests that you enter 3 random Multichannel Code positions, stating that the data are incorrect. Then, the other 4 positions of the Code are requested, as well as the mobile phone information of the user, namely maker, model and number.

Phishing Example:

 

 

 

 

We remind you once again that Millennium bcp's website is accessed using a User Code and three random positions of the Multichannel Code and that Millennium bcp never requests any data concerning the Client's mobile phone, therefore any such request is a fraud attempt.

We remind you that:

Phishing aims to, abusively, steal personal data through messages that take the user to fake websites, imitating those you usually access and requesting that you enter confidential data.

The malware (virus, Trojan horses, spyware or adware) also disguises the origin of the e-mail, making the recipient believe that the message is legitimate. However, if the e-mail is read and its contents are executed, third parties with malicious intents may gain control of your computer and of the information in it.

Hence, we alert for the fact that many messages (allegedly innocent) that we receive in our inboxes may contain viruses or any other malware.

Thus, we advise you to remain vigilant and take some precautions, of which we highlight the following:

  • Analyse the e-mails you receive before opening them, always confirming the source and the subject, if possible with the issuer;
  • Avoid opening links to external websites and opening executable files;
  • Never provide personal information or data in an e-mail reply;
  • When accessing confidential access websites, check the address and make sure you are on a secure webpage (https:// + lock);
  • Install (if you haven't done so yet) an antivirus software and update it regularly.

Remember: your computer's protection depends on you!
