Cybercriminals target Barclays Bank customers


by David Allen

For most of Barclays Bank online customers the PIN Sentry is a great idea, it adds another level of security and increases peace of mind, but it seems that the cybercriminals are attempting to cash in on this success and are trying to steal customers’ personal and banking details.

A phishing email, that targets Barclays customers, claims that the device is in need of upgrading and that they should open the attachment and enter their details.

The email reads as follows:

“To help protect your account from Online fraud, we are changing the security for Barclays Online Banking and you will need to upgrade to PIN Sentry”.

However, in the email they are requesting full personal and bank details, which is clearly a phishing attempt.
