Fearmongering scammers are using the coronavirus crisis to install dangerous malware onto computers. Scammers are using fear-mongering as a tactic to spread malware during the outbreak.
Unsuspecting victims are being sent an email that warns of coronavirus being discovered in their local area. The email contains an attachment with details about various measures to prevent infection.
According to the 9news, Cybersecurity experts warn the attached file contains a dangerous type of malware campaign capable of stealing banking logins, financial data, and even emptying cryptocurrency wallets.
The trojan is attached under the guise of pdf, mp4 and docx files. Users who open the document are infected with the malware, which can go undetected by antivirus software.
Different iterations of the email have been discovered by cybersecurity firms IBM X-Force and Kaspersky. With the emails being sent in several different languages.
“What makes these attacks rather special, is the fact that they deliver the Emotet trojan, which has shown increased activity recently,” IBM X-Force wrote in a statement.
Kaspersky malware analyst Anton Ivanov said the cybersecurity company had found 10 different files containing malicious content but expected this number to grow.
As people continue to be worried for their health, we may see more and more malware hidden inside fake documents about the coronavirus being spread,” he said.
