Cyber criminals leverage fear of coronavirus
Cyber criminals are stooping to a further low and exploiting people’s fear over coronavirus. Malware disguised as educational information about coronavirus is being spread to people who are, quite rightly, concerned about the risks and looking for ways to protect themselves. Be ever vigilant for phishing campaigns (the technique used by cyber criminals to lure you to click a link which then downloads the malware/ malicious software on to your computer).
Our advice is to never click on links purporting to offer advice, always use trustworthy sites to source information. Most importantly always keep your software up to date with the best antivirus protection. Prevention is always a better than the cure.
