Exploiting, Even, the Coronavirus Pandemic

There’s always somebody who will take advantage of anything, warns the Hot for Security blog, even the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Preying on the common desire to learn more about the signs and dangers, or even how to survive potential exposure to COVID-19,” the post reports, “cybercriminals have started sending phishing emails that promise exclusive information in the form of attachments and links to protection gear at highly discounted prices. Many even ask for Bitcoin donations that they say will support research for a Coronavirus vaccine.”

So be on your digital guard as the pandemic wears on.
