Malwarebytes detects Plusnet sms as phising -

As per the subject heading, SWMBO had a text this am from PN:


But malwarebytes popped up with the following:

I know what to doRoll eyes, but thought I'd let PN know, as others may become concerned and thus possibly clog up the phone system with their concerns.... Undecided


(the fact that sms texts notifications has been turned off via my portal is a matter for another time)

Hi @DS

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. From looking at this I think the Malwarebytes application is being sensitive as the service notification was sent and the application has picked up on the the link which takes you to the members centre to log in and respond to the ticket.

I have also checked the account and you are opted out for marketing communications but for service notifications regarding the service you will receive the messages.
