Hackers are on the rise during the Covid-19 Pandemic

As a precaution in these uncertain times, do not open emails from people you cannot identify.

Recently I received an email that was an attempt at corrupting our database.

Here’s what to look for:

Here are a few red flags:

  • I do not know of this person and cannot identify his company from his email.
  • It’s being sent to a database named: user@t.online.de and not to my email address.
  • He uses "Transfer" as the draw.
  • He has an attachment "Wire.html" that he would like me to open (PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THESE).
  • He does not offer any information other than "Account Dept"

You should: Right click on the email and Block this sender and delete the email.
