IBM uncovers global email attack on Covid vaccine supply chain

  • IBM cybersecurity analysts on Thursday said they uncovered an email phishing scheme targeting global coronavirus vaccine supply chains.
  • The fraudulent emails impersonated a Chinese business executive at a credible cold-chain supply company dating back to September.
  • IBM said “the purpose of this campaign may have been to harvest credentials to gain future unauthorized access.”
  • IBM said the attacks likely targeted organizations linked to Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, which is working to supply low- and middle-income economies with an affordable coronavirus vaccine.
