Sample Phishing Scam!

You can’t buy a COVID-19 “cure”

3/19/20

Many of the COVID-19 scams going around involve attempts by companies and individuals to sell products they claim to prevent or cure the novel coronavirus.

Solution:

Ignore offers for a COVID-19 vaccine, cure, or treatment. Remember, if there is a medical breakthrough, you won’t hear about it for the first time through an email, online ad, or unsolicited sales pitch.

John Hopkins Malware Risk

3/18/20

Someone has created a malware-laden mimic of the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 tracker. The mimic provides a fully functional version of the Hopkins tracker with two key differences. First, the mimic has a different URL and second, the mimic’s tracker is a Windows download. If downloaded and installed, malware is deployed that steals credentials among other things. The mimic is being distributed through websites and emails. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS THAT ASK YOU TO DOWNLOAD THE TRACKER. The real Hopkins tracker works in your web browser.

Solution:

Do not click on links or open email attachments from unknown or unverified sources. Doing so could download a virus onto your computer or device.
