Scammers Are Looking for You
While working remotely, be on the look out for Phishing scams related to Coronavirus
As we continue to follow the reporting on Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are monitoring the developments and taking action to keep you safe.
With it’s global reach, people are concerned about the epidemic, and cybercriminals are jumping at the opportunity to exploit that.
That’s right, cybercriminals have already begun sending out emails imitating legitimate health experts or recognizable organizations, charities, or government departments. This is what we call phishing, and you should be on guard.
These types of emails often contain a file download prompt that claims to have advice or information, in this case about the coronavirus. If you download the file, instead, your computer will be infected with malware, or worse.
Additionally, these phishing scams may try to get information from you. They may prompt you for confidential information in exchange for health advice, or link you to a document asking you to sign in with your email. Don’t fall for it– they want you to enter in your email and password because if you do, now they have it.
