Hackers are abusing the coronavirus

While the coronavirus outbreak continues worldwide, hackers have found ways to abuse the virus to perform malicious activities. Multiple reports of malicious and automated coronavirus e-mails have been reported in various locations around the world. The most striking case of such an action can be found in Japan, with the notorious Emotet trojan being spread in e-mail attachments, according to reports from Check Point Research and Quick Heal.

Check Point noted that the e-mails claim to have come from a Japanese service provider for disabled people, operating in areas where the virus has spread. The e-mail recipient is being misled to open the e-mails claiming to have official documentation about the virus, Check Point notes. As soon as the victim opens these e-mails that contain an attachment, the Emotet trojan is installed on the victim's computer or device. These e-mails look legitimate, because the hackers falsify official characteristics of the Japanese company, also called spoofing.

Check Point also pointed out that a number of new websites have been registered with domain names related to the virus. These are likely to be used for phishing attempts, the security firm warns. An example is a website called vaccine covid-19, which was created on February 11th 2020 and registered in Russia, where the website claims to offer "the best and fastest test for coronavirus detection". Below tips can be found that increase awareness about hackers and the corona virus:

  • Be careful when opening e-mails that describe anything about the coronavirus;
  • Don't download files from such e-mails, especially when the attachment is a.PDF, .MP4 or .DOC;
  • Carefully examine the e-mail's sender;
  • Watch out for educational videos related to coronavirus.
