Microsoft warns of massive Covid-19 phishing campaign using Excel

May 23, 2020 19:53 IST

Microsoft's Security Intelligence team has warned of a major new phishing campaign using malicious Excel files and fake Covid-19 news to target unsuspecting victims. The campaign tricks people into opening email attachments and installs a remote access tool onto PCs that can allow hackers to take over end user computers. Microsoft said the Covid-19 themed campaign began on May 12, and has so far used several hundreds of unique attachments, including those cloning Johns Hopkins Center.
