Cybercriminals have compromised the website of an India-based software company and they’re abusing it to host phishing pages and other malicious elements.

According to Bitdefender researchers, the attackers launched a spam campaign that leverages the name and reputation of HSBC and other financial institutions. The links from the bogus notifications lead to a phishing page hosted on the compromised site.

Here, victims are asked to hand over their account credentials.
