Mark Rogers, one of the four managers of the group, said that our first priority is to work against hackers who are taking support of medical facilities and other things related to the corona epidemic. We are already working on hacking the Health Organization. Rogers also said that at this time most people are doing work from home and in such a situation, communication networks and services have to be saved. Rogers says he has never seen such phishing before. And at this time, phishing messages are being sent in every language.
These phishing messages lure users so that they put their personal information like passwords on websites that are controlled by cyber-criminal. These hackers then use this data to bank, email and break into their accounts. You should never share your personal information or bank details on any non trusted website.
