It is a variant of the so-called smishing – in which cyber criminals steal confidential access data with the help of SMS.

Anyone who clicks on the embedded link is redirected to the deceptively realistically designed fake portals of the financial institutions to activate a new push TAN procedure and is asked to enter their bank details.
