Security experts are warning that the scammers are gearing up to exploit the Coronavirus crisis. Long story short, there are two kinds of scams predicted right now:
- Playing on FEAR, there will be a “click here for more information” bait. The link will give the attacker access into your computer, and possibly take you to a fake news site. Please get your news from whatever news web sites you already know and trust.
- Playing on SYMPATHY, there will be “donate to the victims / aid agencies” scams. Web domains are already being developed. If you choose to make a charitable donation, please select a well-known reputable charity or aid agency instead of a disaster-specific domain name.
