The Black Friday could turn out to be much more expensive than expected. Cybersecurity Experts: Cybercrime plans traps on underground forums to steal money from victims, from fake sites to malware. Beware of too tempting offers!
Beware of the Black Friday sales, they could turn out to be much more expensive than expected. Cybersecurity experts say this, underlining that cybercrime actors have prepared themselves for the occasion and will launch a series of ad hoc scams. This year, according to expectations, online shopping will take the lion’s share of purchases. This following the Covid-19 emergency, which continues to scare many potential customers, who out of prudence prefer to shop on the web rather than in physical stores. However, the phenomenon has also been detected by cybercriminals. So much so that it has been talked about for days on underground hackers’ forums. There is therefore a fear of a wave of emails with very attractive offers, which, however, hide a trap and above all have a common goal: to steal money from the victim. Whether it’s through fake e-commerce store sites or thanks to malware and ransomware.
