While the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, hackers are reportedly using infection-related emails as a hook for a new phishing campaign. A coronavirus-themed attack is looking to steal personal information from victims, including cryptocurrency wallets, web browser details for login credentials, IP addresses and more.

Discovered by BleepingComputer, the new scam email is designed to appear like it has been sent from a nearby hospital, and informs users that they’ve come in contact with a COVID-19 infected person and asks the user to print out an attached file. Once its downloaded the embedded macros in the file start to download, install a malware.
