Cybercriminals are taking advantage of fears about Covid-19.
While people across the globe are restricting their movement in the hope of reducing the spread of Covid-19, spammers and phishers are out in full force. They are taking advantage of the online demand for information about the pandemic.
These cybercrimes include phishing attacks, spreading malicious software (malware), and stealing login credentials and credit card details.
Please think very carefully before clicking on any link or attachment in any email alleged to be from the World Health Organisation (WHO) or a similar supposedly trusted source. Be careful about any messages that claim to contain information about a cure for Covid-19, new platforms for threat map information, or any other offers that sound too good to be true.
Please avoid opening emails and text messages from unknown sources or visiting untrusted websites.
Other tips to avoid falling victim to these criminals:
Please report any suspected fraudulent activities immediately.
