Coronavirus is been used as bait by phishers

Several cyber security researchers have uncovered a surge in the number of phishing emails using the coronavirus (COVID-19) as a lure.

Cyber criminals have been exploiting the pandemic to steal money or sensitive information through phishing campaigns in several countries.

By creating fake websites and emails masquerading as legitimate, attackers have been able to infect victims with malware.

Unfortunately, cyber criminals are opportunistic and can often look to exploit current events and public concerns.
