Chilean IT solutions company NovaRed has warned about a new type of phishing that seeks to steal confidential data via deceptive emails and text messages, the company said in a statement.

Through a fake email, supposedly sent by a bank, hackers warn clients of a bank transfer of funds to their accounts, with a link that says, "Click here for more information on the transfer."

By clicking the link, users are redirected to a webpage similar to the bank's website, tricking them into entering their passwords.
