In our sample, the URL takes us to the phishing site located at hxxp://netflix-validation-uk.co.uk/~netflix/authcode.22e2839f6ea44972845f1e0b02f397ba/email_identifier=71a605276e146b93e52b0c1bfb98ade285c337b0a6b7e5f3f560fd5bb11f1d1c/d0446fac4ba6feceb507af17e1b0bca8/Login.php

This shows us an identical copy of the official Netflix login page.

After submitting the login and password, the phishing process begins by asking to fill in our billing information.

Followed by filling in our credit card details

Our account seems to be updated and we can continue….
