Phishing Campaigns Tied To Coronavirus
As the coronavirus generates headlines around the world, cyber-criminals are continuing to use this public health crisis to spread phishing emails and create malicious domains for a variety of fraud.
The most recent example comes from the World Health Organization, a United Nations unit, which warned this week that fraudsters have started to use its name and images as part of phishing attacks and other scams.
“If you are contacted by a person or organization that appears to be from WHO, verify their authenticity before responding,” according to a warning posted on the WHO website. “WHO is aware of suspicious email messages attempting to take advantage of the 2019 novel coronavirus emergency.”
