Hackers use Coronavirus fear to trick victims into new online scams

According to techradar, criminals are exploiting fears over the growing threat of the coronavirus to trick users around the world with new online scams. Researchers have found that email attacks using coronavirus as a hook are expanding in numbers, with victims having personal and financial information stolen.
