Over 4,000 domains related to the corona virus have been registered since January and many of these are used to spread malicious code.

If you are looking for information about the corona virus, be careful. Not only is there a lot of false information, there is also a risk that you will be caught by phishing or get malicious code on your computer.

According to a new report from Check Point Software Technologies, more than 4,000 domains related to the corona virus have been registered since January. Of these sites, between three and eight percent contain some type of malware, including Trojans and computer viruses.

There is also an increase in scam emails concerning the virus, for example, users are offered to buy “cure for $ 150” while others are tricked into leaving sensitive personal information.
