Fake ‘Coronavirus Maps’ Are Infecting PCs With Malware To Steal Passwords
Beware of these fake websites and apps!

According to an investigation by Reason Security, these coronavirus maps contain serious malware such as AZORult.

Reason Labs found one such Windows software called the “Corona Virus Map” that uses the same interface as Johns Hopkins University’s tracker which is a legitimate one. It’s a small Win32 EXE file named Corona-virus-Map.com.exe. with a payload size of only around 3.26 MB.

Secret Service Issues COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Phishing Alert



Quick Tips:
 Phishing Emails / Social Engineering – Avoid opening attachments and clicking on links within emails from senders you do not recognize. These attachments can contain malicious content, such as ransomware, that can infect your device and steal your information. Be leery of emails or phone calls requesting account information or requesting you to verify your account. Legitimate businesses will never call you or email you directly for this information.  Always independently verify any requested information originates from a legitimate source.
 Visit websites by inputting the domain name yourself. Business use encryption, Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Certificate “errors” can be a warning sign that something is not right with the website
