Robin Williams and Ebola virus latest exploited headlines; Five critical steps to avoid falling victim to phishing and malware campaigns
MEDINA, Ohio, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirtyseven4, LLC, a leading provider of Windows, Mac and Android antivirus solutions, cautioned today to be on alert for potential Ice Bucket Challenge-themed scams. The Ice Bucket Challenge is a phenomenon spreading ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) awareness across the Country and world. The premise of the challenge is for a person to challenge their friends, family or co-workers (usually over social media) to either dump a bucket of ice water over their head within 24 hours or donate $100 to ALS.
"Cybercriminals have a long history of capitalizing on the hottest trends and latest headlines to disguise their evil doings. Recently, we've seen it with Facebook scammers posting bogus video claims of beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams saying his last goodbyes. Cybercriminals are also exploiting the world's attention to the Ebola virus outbreak by luring them into opening malicious email attachments. The now viral Ice Bucket Challenge will be no exception, especially with high-profile celebrities getting involved and the challenge going global. I feel it's only a matter of time before fake ALS donation websites start polluting social networking sites and other malware operations start surfacing," said Steven Sundermeier, Owner of Thirtyseven4.
Thirtyseven4 suggests five steps to avoid falling victim to potential Ice Bucket Challenge-themed attacks:
