Recently, there has been an increased number of phishing emails related to COVID-19. To protect yourself and your organization, please follow the following guidelines from our i3 security team lead and CTO.
Please look out for:
Attached files, especially .dll files and .bmp files (photos)
Mobile apps offering COVID-19 tracking maps
Website links offering COVID-19 information
Online stores that sell shortage items
Fraudulent emails that appear to be from the CDC, asking you to "urgently" open a file or click on a link
Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the current situation to catch people with their guard down.
