Bank warns customers of new kind of fraud

ICICI Bank has issued a cautionary advisory to all its customers, urging vigilance against malicious links and files. The bank reports instances where cybercriminals are deceiving customers into downloading harmful files or clicking on malicious links. These files facilitate the forwarding of messages from customers’ mobile devices upon registration on payment apps, as well as unauthorized forwarding of OTPs and other sensitive information.
The bank has asked the customers to remain vigilant and also do not install any suspicious/malicious application on their smartphone.
