AFBS News: COVID-19: Malware warning FOPH

Since Friday 13 March 2020, cybercriminals are attempting to spread malware using emails purporting to be from the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH.

If you receive or have already received such emails please delete them immediately.

The Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance MELANI is calling on the public to ignore such emails, not to open any attachments, and on no account to click on any links they may contain. The malware is installed by opening the attachment or by clicking on a link in the mail. This allows the attackers to gain remote access to the computer and obtain passwords.
