Title https://ia.acs.org.au/article/2020/coronavirus-scams-on-the-rise.html Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Information Age Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 26/03/20 Description Just as the coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, is spreading rapidly around the world, so too is it providing cyber criminals with a rich environment to conduct their cybercrime ‘business’.
Cyber criminals thrive on uncertainty, and are benefiting from, and exploiting, the public’s fear of, and curiosity regarding, the coronavirus, effectively parasitising what the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared a pandemic, and in doing so are creating a cyberspace epidemic.
