Beware of Coronavirus Scams
Fraudsters have taken advantage of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to exploit the global thirst for knowledge on the virus. Malicious actors have launched Coronavirus-themed phishing attacks to spread malware, typically looking to steal banking credentials. Fraudsters have also created fake websites to deliver misinformation.
Some of these attacks are in the form of emails, which contain infected attachments or links to malicious websites. The emails are made to appear like they come from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO posted an article on its website warning users of this scam.
There are also several fake Coronavirus interactive maps that infect user devices with credential-stealing malware. Fraudsters are circulating links to these malicious websites containing Coronavirus maps through social media and phishing emails.
Please be very cautious. Think twice before opening an attachment or clicking on a link that you do not recognize. Be extra mindful when providing personal information, always consider why someone would want or need your information and if it is appropriate to give it out.
