Internet scammers have come up with a new scheme to steal personal data of Russians. Passwords, logins and other confidential information fall into the hands of criminals thanks to just one link.

The new identity theft scam is dubbed The White Rabbit. As reported "News", the scheme does not raise suspicions at different stages, so it is more difficult for banks to track it. First, the client visits the branded site with a survey, and then receives a message about the win with a malicious link. Passing through it, attackers recognize all the data of a person.

The surge in such cases with surveys occurred in the second half of 2019. However, now the attackers have decided to lengthen the scheme in order to increase the victim's trust. Now scammers offer to take a survey on behalf of the stars or convince to do it on behalf of fake news anchors.

Previously, there was a wave of hacking accounts on social networks. Attackers sent out messages to subscribers asking for financial help. Experts note that in recent years, stably the number of crimes is increasing using the internet.
