Hackers operating in China are duping Indians into a bogus Tata Motors scam

The research wing of the New Delhi-based CyberPeace Foundation received some links via WhatsApp, related to a free gift offer from Tata Motors, collecting browser and system information as well as the cookie data from the users.

Cyber-security researchers in India on Thursday said they have discovered a malicious free gift campaign pretending to be an offer from Tata Motors that is collecting users’ data, and the campaign has been traced to China-based hackers.

“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,” the research team said in a statement.

If any user opens the link from a device like smartphones where the WhatsApp application is installed, the sharing features on the site will open the WhatsApp application on the device to share the link.

“The prizes are kept really attractive to lure the laymen,” the team said. The title of the fake website is “Tata Motors Cars, Celebrates sales exceeding 30 million.”

On the landing page, a congratulations message appears with an attractive photo of a Tata Safari car and asks users to participate in a quick survey to get a free TATA Safari vehicle.

“Also, at the bottom of this page, a section comes up which seems to be a Facebook comment section where many users have commented about how the offer is beneficial,” the research revealed.
