    Default Malware alert - Corona virus live map

    Re malicious website masquerading as a live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by JohnsHopkins University. Using the website as a lure, visiting the website infects the user with AZORult Trojan.
    URL for the malicious site is (corona-virus-map[dot]com).

    Probably you guys already know this. I wish I had.

    The same security alert was issued to the AMA. Apparently some innocent had gone to that moving map...

    The malware taps and exports sensitive information.

    I’m not sure if I have it. I don’t know if I went into the sight by triggering the map, or if you have to go farther in. My sister sent me the info since she works for MD countyEMA. I guess I’ll ask my phone did I just import this malware into my phone?

    My goodness, the alert was an inter-office memo. It started with a subject line about how even during a pandemic, Hackers Never Rest. Good luck with staying healthy, kids!

    Love you all.

    ps a hapless innocent in the building destroyed our community computer with it. It’s probably a public service, that keyboard was gross.

    pps it wasn’t me. It might’ve been, if it hadn’t been for the totally gross keyboard. I’m just that hapless.
