ALERT: Prince’s Last Words
Yesterday, news broke that Prince (aka Prince Rogers Nelson) was found dead in his home in Minneapolis at age 57.
CyberCriminals eager, as always, to take advantage of any tragedy, are up to their same tricks. A series of email scams are currently being circulated, one of which is most likely to be a supposed video of Prince’s last words caught on video (this is a frequent scam to use after an especially unexpected celebrity death).
Whatever ploy is being used, you can be sure to end up with either infected computers at home or in the office, giving out personal information, or unleashing ransomware on the network.
Beware of any email, attachments, any social media, texts on your phone…anything.
With the recent eqrthquakes in Ecuador and Japan, there are charity scams rearing their ugly heads.
