“The campaign is pretended to be an offer from Tata Motors but hosted on the third-party domain instead of the official website of Tata Motors which makes it more suspicious,” said the research team at New Delhi-based CyberPeace Foundation.

It has recently come to light that China-based hackers are running a malicious free gift campaign to collect personal user data. Cybersecurity researchers have revealed that the campaign is pretending to be an offer from Tata Motors, the biggest automobile manufacturing company in India, reports IANS.

This malicious campaign being operated on a fake website is titled “Tata Motors Cars, Celebrates sales exceeding 30 million” and has been uncovered by the research wing of CyberPeace Foundation. The research team received some links via WhatsApp, related to a free gift offer from Tata Motors.

The report states that these malicious links collect confidential data about users including their browser and system information as well as the cookie data. Moreover, the prizes of the malware-ridden campaign have been kept attractive to trick people.

The landing page on the website displays a congratulations message with a photo of a Tata Safari car. Users are asked to participate in a quick survey to get a free TATA Safari vehicle. A Facebook comment section is also present at the bottom of the landing page where users have commented about how they benefited from the offer. Once the user decides to participate in the survey, he/she is given three attempts to win the prize.
