Beware of Phishing Emails

<< Prev. Email: Spam or Scam Emails

During the COVID-19 lockdown time, the phishing activity has increased; hence you need to be more vigilant with unknown emails.

“Prevention is better than cure.”

If your anti-virus or anti-malware mark an email as scam, fraud or phishing, do not try to click on its URL's or open an attachment, as they may infect the system. A lot of businesses have lost millions of dollars to redeem their affected companies or corporations.

Somebody opens the attachment looking like a Word or Excel file, and then a hidden malicious file encrypts all the files and folders and infects the system with ransomware. Later the hacker starts the extortion process and provides a bitcoin address and amount to transfer to redeem.
