Communications that convey an “urgent” need to act or provide guidance on where to report suspicious messages when not from a credible source.
As you take measures to avoid the threat of contracting or spreading the coronavirus itself, it is prudent to take similar action to prevent exposure to a coronavirus related cybersecurity attack. Proactive measures include watching for suspicious emails that use odd/incorrect language or have details that are slightly wrong. Do not click on suspicious links or open files from unknown sources. And be especially careful about opening emails or files that purport to contain advice about the coronavirus.
