Watch out for Coronavirus Scams!

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
