Covid-19 Scam Alert

Scam Alert - Exploiting the Coronavirus: Fear of Infection

 

 

 The cybercriminals are ruthless with their Coronavirus-themed phishing attacks. They have sent emails that appear to be from a hospital and warn that you have been exposed to the virus through contact with a colleague, friend, or family member.
Attached to the email is a “pre-filled” form to download and take with you to the hospital. Don’t be fooled. The attachment is actually a sophisticated piece of malware. This threat relies on panic and fear to bypass rational thinking. Don’t give in!

 

Remember to stay vigilant:

  • Think before you click. The bad guys rely on impulsive clicking.

  • Never download an attachment from an email you weren’t expecting. 

  • Even if the sender appears to be from a familiar organization, the email address could be spoofed.
