There is a whole hell of a lot of malware and phishing out there today
It started this morning with an old server getting hammered with ransomware, and by noon I’d seen two legit looking pages pop up from advertising code on sites on my computer indicating that McAfee antivirus web protect subscription had expired, one of these a bust-out ad on Worldometers. Not having installed that ever, and realizing when I’m not on the page I clicked, not really a thing that concerned me.
My inbox is filled with phishing emails forwarded in from various clients. I’ve got reports that my web hosting was knocked down last night for quite a bit and no clue why.
I’d say the war for our computers is in full swing today. Watch out. Maybe it’s just Monday though.
