Don't be Scared into Being Scammed
Please be aware that a malicious website pretending to be a live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unwitting internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website infects the user’s computer with an information stealing program which can exfiltrate a variety of sensitive data. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website.
Users should be warned that the internet is full of websites that are fake and fraudulent. Here are a few tips to help you determine if a website is fake.
Check connection security indicators. A website that has an “https” tag is usually more secure—and therefore more trustworthy—than a site using the common “http” designation.
View certificate details by checking the site’s security status in your browser’s address bar. For most browsers, a “safe” website will display a padlock icon to the left of the website’s URL.
Pay close attention to the URL. A website’s URL consists of the connection type (“http” or “https”), the domain name itself (e.g., "uccs", “google”, “amazon”, etc.), and the extension (“.com”, “.net”, “.gov”, etc.). Even if you’ve verified that the connection is secure, be on the lookout for red flags like dashes and symbols in the names or domain names that imitate business names.
Watch out for invasive and aggressive advertising.
