Veterans Being Exploited by Computer Hackers on a Fake Site


How reckless computer hackers can seem! The Threatpost blog reports on how “a known threat actor, Tortoiseshell, is targeting U.S. military veterans with a fake veteran hiring website that hosts malware.”

Go there and you’ll be prompted to download an app “which in turn downloads malware that deploys malicious spyware and other tools onto victims’ systems.”

These victims, mind you, are veterans who served their country with years of their lives. Read about the fake website involved (we don’t want to name it here).
