Daily Express: COVID-19 warning as Britons attacked by vaccine scam - ‘too good to be true!’
Express.co.uk spoke to Carl Wearn, head of e-crime at Mimecast, who provided further insight on the matter.
He said: “This is another example of cybercriminals adjusting their tactics to fit the current news agenda.
“With the success of the vaccination rollout covered extensively in the media and more vaccines being made available, these criminals understand many people are expecting to be offered one soon.
“Cybercriminals will often modify traditional attack methodologies to exploit current events such as this in an attempt to lure the vulnerable to engage with or click on links in emails, applications, or texts.
