1 min read

Zeus Sphinx malware has been lying dormant for years, but now a new strain has emerged to capitalize on the coronavirus pandemic. This new wave is being distributed to people through spam emails that claim to provide information on coronavirus cures. Some of this fake email claim to offer cures on online markets and even fake product to prevent the COVID-19t virus

IBM X-Force said that Zeus Sphinx — also known as Zloader or Terdot — has been spotted in campaigns launched in March that focus on government relief payments.

Do not trust any email claiming to offer coronavirus cures; cybercriminal scumbags are exploiting the pandemic in the quest to steal your financial information.
