Intelligence agencies have warned internet users that a new wave of cyber-attacks are to hit in wake of the coronavirus outbreak. The National Cyber Security Centre has warned of fake emails from supposed health authorities, designed to capitalise on people’s fears around the virus. The emails usually contain links to bogus advice. The NCSC said: “Individuals in the UK have been targeted by these coronavirus-themed phishing emails, with infected attachments containing fictitious ‘safety measures’.”
