This new phishing attack targets iPhone and Android alike via RCS

A new phishing service has been detected sporting a unique way of approaching iOS and Android users.

The Phishing-as-a-Service (PhaaS) tool, called “Darcula” and uncovered by researchers at Netcraft, stands out from the crowd as it reaches out to its victims via the Rich Communication Services (RCS) protocol for Google Messages and iMessage, instead of the usual Short Message System (SMS).
