This kind of nasty backdoors into your banking interfaces is something you should be aware of. As the article outlines this latest campaign uses a Phishing aspect to lure victims. Just don’t click on these things, and for the love of God, do not download Word Documents or PDF documents.

The more insidious part of this is that they are using the COVID-19 Pandemic Relief to leverage more angles to get you to load the malware. If you receive requests for help, do not take them at face value.

In Canada these can be easily hidden in emails claiming to help with:

  • Small Business Loans for COVID-19 affected small businesses
  • Black Lives Matter fund raisers, and calls to action

Stay vigilant, and stay secure.
