Coronavirus phishing scam targets university students, staff

Amid hundreds of on-campus class closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, a new phishing email campaign is trying to trick college students and staff into clicking on bogus links for information. The campaign attempts to capture login credentials and infect computers with malware, and it's part of a growing trend of hackers exploiting fears surrounding the coronavirus. San Francisco-based company Abnormal Security published an advisory on its website noting that attackers are using the crisis as bait, since students and staff are likely attuned to any news about how their university is responding to the pandemic. Betsy Foresman has more about the malware here.
