Reveal Menu

We’ve received warning from Cyber Protection Officers that cyber criminals are using the Coronavirus as bait to send phishing emails to access personal details or company data. Security professionals have found malicious PDF, MP4 and docx files disguised as documents in emails. The campaign is spreading and reaching many countries now including the UK, and is customised in different languages. Attackers are always coming up with new methods to trick people into clicking on malicious links and using high-profile topics that are emotion driven is common amongst scammers.

What is phishing?

Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising as a trustworthy and well-known entity. Email and SMS messaging is the most common platform for phishing, and often directs users to enter personal information at a fake website which matches the look and feel of the legitimate site or open malicious attachments to add malware to their computers.

Four tips for remaining cyber safe:

  • Install antivirus software and keep it updated
  • Check incoming email domains and always type web addresses directly into google, don’t click a link
  • Keep software up-to-date on all devices: PCs, mobiles and tablets
  • Always use strong complex passwords and add two-factor authentication to all accounts where possible for an extra layer of security

Be Vigilant

It is important to remain vigilant when receiving emails, texts and even phone calls from seemingly reputable companies. Don’t click on a link or give out any information unless you are 100% sure it is safe. Ken Holmes, CertiKit’s Principal Consultant said, “The willingness of fraudsters to make use of major crises to gain a foothold into computers and networks to steal personal data proves once more how strong cyber security is vital to individuals and businesses.”
