Last week we spoke about the majority of people requiring remote access at this time due to the governments request that should you be able to work from home, its essential you do so after the rapid acceleration of Coronavirus. This has caused a lot of panic all over the world, leading to more email spam being targeted at those most concerned about the virus.
We have spoken before about email and web threats, so we know the basics to look out for. However, this time the spam is more specific and we have created a infographic (see below) with a few examples of what to look out for.
Cyber Security is always important for businesses, and should be considered a key requirement. As seen above in the infographic, there are multiple ways cyber criminals can use emails to target businesses. These emails will most likely be sent to their employees, who will unknowingly open the email and potentially allow harmful malware to invade your systems.
As can be seen from the infographic, one of the popular forms of spam at this moment in time is informing the reader of new information regarding the current situation with the virus. The sender will often identify themselves as a governing body making it more believable for the reader. You should ensure that you always double check your sources, if the email address does not look correct do not trust the email.
Another common spam email we are seeing is asking the reader for money, be that by claiming they had a cure for the virus for sale or even asking for donations to help find the cure. The criminals then either take the bank details of the victim and use it to their own advantage or just take the money which the reader ‘donated’.
