Spearphishing Campaign Exploits COVID-19 To Spread Lokibot Infostealer

  • Researchers have discovered threat actors once again capitalizing on the COVID-19 pandemic and current attention on the World Health Organization (WHO) with a new spearphishing email designed to spread the LokiBot trojan sent using the WHO trademark as a lure.
  • The body of the email contains multiple points about infection control and other suggestions and recommendations, which is obviously a lure to further compel the recipient to continue reading…and in a twisted fashion, the messaging pretends to address misinformation related to COVID-19/Coronavirus.
