Cybercrime and COVID-19
Gold Comet
Cyber criminals are using concerns about the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) to launch phishing attacks.
As we all have been captivated by COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, across all media channels, it has also captured the attention of some cybercriminals. These cybercriminals are, unfortunately, exploiting email to take advantage on the public’s desire to learn more about the outbreak. There are reports of phishing scams that attempt to steal personal information or to infect your devices with malware, and ads that peddle false information or scam products.
In one example, a phishing email that used the logo of the CDC Health Alert Network claimed to provide a list of local active infections. Recipients were instructed to click on a link in the email to access the list. Next, recipients were asked to enter their email login credentials, which were then stolen.  Gold Comet understands that although phishing and whaling attempts are almost non-stop in the healthcare arena, we wanted to do something about it. Gold Comet strives to be the leader in secure communications for individuals and healthcare professionals who demand privacy and security of their online communications. The ever-increasing vulnerabilities in email communications has turned the endpoints (i.e., sender and receiver) into easy targets.  Don’t let this happen to you.  The Gold Comet solution directly addresses that issue by removing them from the equation!  At Gold Comet we take email security very seriously.
