(URGENT) We would like to raise awareness that criminals are using the coronavirus outbreak to send sending phishing that try to trick users into clicking on a bad link. If clicked, these links could lead to malware infection and loss of data like passwords. The scams may claim to have a ‘cure’ for the virus, offer a financial reward, or be encouraging you to donate.
If you receive suspicious-looking emails please avoid the temptation to click these links as doing so may infect your device with malware. Also, use caution when viewing websites offering the ability to track coronavirus cases on a ‘live map’ as many are fake. The GOV.UK website offers a live tracking feature, if you wish to view this information.
