Beware of Potential Internet-Based Scams and Viruses Related to Regional, National or International Emergencies
Northrop Grumman employees should be acutely aware of the immediate potential for scams and viruses related to regional, national or international emergencies (such as hurricanes, fires, floods, severe storms, earthquakes or terrorist attacks) posted on the Internet.
After similar situations in the past, e-mails and websites claim to contain exclusive video of the disaster or to solicit donations for the disaster relief efforts. The e-mails often included malicious code that attempted to infect computers with viruses, spyware or Trojan horses. Other e-mails appeared to be legitimate donation requests but were in reality phishing attacks that directed users to a malicious server that collected credit card numbers, PayPal logins and personal information.
There are reports of questionable relief fund sites already available on the Internet. Numerous recent disaster items are also available on eBay, including domain names that sound like disaster relief fund sites. Many of these auctions claim that a portion of the proceeds will go to the disaster relief efforts.
These kinds of scams and attacks seek to take advantage of our charity and our curiosity. The most successful of them look professional and legitimate. They can appear to be identical to authentic relief fund sites. Take your time to carefully consider disaster-relief solicitations before giving. The best protection against these attacks and scams is to donate directly to reputable charitable organizations.
If you receive any questionable e-mails, do not reply.
