COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Phishing Emails

The email may ask you to open an attachment to see statistics on how the virus is spreading. Clicking on the link, however, may download some form of malware on your computer. The malware could then allow cybercriminals to take control of your system, log your keystrokes, or access personal and financial information.
