CYBER ATTACKS LINKED TO COVID
Different cybersecurity agencies have alerted of a significant spike in malware campaigns that use themes related to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic to infect individuals and organizations around the world.
Currently, there are more than 24,000 registered domains on the Internet that contain the terms: "coronavirus", "corona-virus", "covid19" and "covid-19". Of them, more than half, 16,000, were created on March (10,000 in the last week). Some of them are for legitimate purposes but others are devoted to carrying out spam, phishing or ransomware campaigns.
It has also been detected that some Trojans such as Trickbot and Emotet have evolved their techniques to evade detection, using COVID related warnings.
