WARNING – INCREASED CYBER SECURITY THREAT

On 22nd April 2020 Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) reported a large spike in cyber threats that were disguised via COVIT-19 emails. It was reported that over a dozen of the groups doing this are overseas Government backed.

TAG reported the following:

“Hackers frequently look at crises as an opportunity, and COVID-19 is no different. Across Google products, we’re seeing bad actors use COVID-related themes to create urgency so that people respond to phishing attacks and scams. Our security systems have detected examples ranging from fake solicitations for charities and NGOs, to messages that try to mimic employer communications to employees working from home, to websites posing as official government pages and public health agencies. Recently, our systems have detected 18 million malware and phishing Gmail messages per day related to COVID-19, in addition to more than 240 million COVID-related daily spam messages. Our machine learning models have evolved to understand and filter these threats, and we continue to block more than 99.9 percent of spam, phishing and malware from reaching our users.:
