Cyber-attackers continue to prey on the public's need for information on the Coronavirus epidemic. In the latest example, a fake informational map, once clicked on, infects users with a variety of AZORult malware, which steals personal information from the user's computer, including login credentials, credit card and bank account numbers, and other sensitive documents. It also seeks out cryptocurrency wallets; it can take unauthorized screenshots and even see a user's IP address.
The malicious online map appears legitimate and looks very convincing, and pretends to cite Johns Hopkins University's Center for Systems Science and Engineering as its source. This map can be found at www.Corona-Virus-Map[.]com; please do not click on it! If you already have clicked on this, turn off your computer and bring it to Digital NinjaZ immediately; we can remove the malware with our signature Deep Clean.
