Fraud­sters don’t have a summer break

Sum­mer­time is hol­iday time - unfor­tu­nately, this doesn’t apply to online crim­i­nals. And it is before and during the summer hol­i­days espe­cially that they are par­tic­u­larly active.

Faked web shops offering hygiene arti­cles at com­pletely inflated prices and dubious “reme­dies” against COVID-19 and other ill­nesses were much talked about during lock­down already. Now that mea­sures are easing, many Cen­tral Euro­peans have an increased urge to travel. Those pre­dicted bot­tle­necks in the supply of pro­tec­tive masks and other arti­cles there­fore now pro­vide an addi­tional boost to such ques­tion­able suppliers.

In addi­tion, online crim­i­nals are lining up with newly-devel­oped mal­ware, for instance to try and cap­ture access data required for e-banking.

You should there­fore follow our “5 steps for your dig­ital secu­rity“ both before and during the hol­iday season.
