Several US government agencies have issued warnings for different fraud and phishing schemes that use COVID-19 vaccine content. Such operations are luring potential victims – typically affecting non-enterprise users. In fact, many people opened up malicious emails or websites from work devices – posing a risk to their enterprises.
As a result, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), and The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have handed out an alert for such emerging scams.
The threat actors are leveraging the rising public interest in COVID-19 vaccines, trapping victims to share personal information or send money.
