MELANI Semi-Annual Report 2020/1

The reporting and Analysis Centre for Infor­ma­tion Assur­ance (MELANI) addresses the most impor­tant cyber­in­ci­dents of the first half of 2020 both in Switzer­land and abroad. The cur­rent report focuses on the coro­n­avirus pan­demic, which has been used to entice vic­tims in many cyberattacks.

Cyber­players reg­u­larly adapt their attacks to major events that attract large media cov­erage, such as nat­ural dis­as­ters. This was also the case with the cur­rent COVID-19 pan­demic in the first half of 2020. The attackers used a wide variety of methods to deceive poten­tial vic­tims or spread mal­ware, including false promises of infor­ma­tion about the virus, how to order masks while stocks were low and noti­fi­ca­tions of online orders. The semi-annual report high­lights the var­ious types of cyber­at­tacks that have been car­ried out in con­nec­tion with the pandemic.
