Hackers Use COVID-19 Tracking Map to Hide Spyware
Hackers have weaponized a legitimate COVID-19 tracking map to deliver spyware. Known as SpyMax, the malware can exfiltrate logs for texts and phone calls, and allows the attackers to activate microphones and cameras. The malware appears to be being used to spy on people in Libya.
With workers out of the office, the normal resources which protect them from malware are reduced or absent. Consider providing references to vetted sources of information, web sites or mobile apps, as part of your COVID-19 communication campaign.
