Targets receive an email designed to appear as though it’s from Airbnb, addressing them as a host of the service. The message says hosts can’t accept new bookings or contact potential gusts until they accept a new privacy policy. If they click the malicious link, targets are prompted to enter personal information including payment card details and account data. Everything they enter goes to the attackers.

This report is not a surprise that GDPR is creating new privacy problems!
