1 crore eighty lakhs. Every day this number of fake mails comes from Google Mail, Gmail. Google itself announced this in a recent blog post. The content of this huge number of fake mails is also one.
The coronavirus virus is now causing concern in the world. This fear of the world’s minds is now the capital of cyber-evils.
Coronavirus antidote has not yet been discovered. The panic did not abate. According to India, panic is not only among the poor countries, but also among the citizens of developed countries.
That is why cyber-thugs are setting a trap of cheating by arranging various content of coronavirus.
N-95 masks, gloves, armor (PPE) have become the order of the day in the Dark Web.
The list also includes blood from people who have recovered from corona infections. If you take it in the body or not!
No one should believe such an absurd medicine if you think with logic. But panic and anxiety are leading to a state of mind in which many are no longer in a position to use reason or consideration.
Coronavirus antidote is also being sold on the Dark Web at a high price before the discovery! The average price of such a drug is 360, according to a report from a criminological research center in Australia.
Again, if claimed to be imported from China, the price of the antidote is up to 15,000 dollars.
Morgan Wright worked as a human rights analyst at the US National Security Agency. A few days ago, he told the BBC in an interview, “This extreme fear, uncertainty is what miscreants are using. People are desperate for something they would never have wanted under normal circumstances. ”
Cybercriminals want to keep their identities secret, so their movement is on the Dark Web. This Dark Web is not accessible to everyone without specific technology. Apart from all these scams, there is also online gambling and drug dealing.
Money is transacted in Bitcoin through this dark web but many times human rights activists, whistleblowers have exposed corruption, which is not possible on the public internet under state surveillance.
The miscreants are also taking the opportunity to avoid that surveillance. It’s like a shell saw. In today’s situation, the shell has been sawed. People’s empathy, helping mentality.
These positive traits of the human mind are also cyber. Criminals are becoming capital. Many people want to pay more than to stand by an initiative in a corona situation.
In fact, the miscreants are taking the money in disguise. Many examples of this have been seen in our country.
Corona Situation In Macabilla, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of the ‘PM Cares’ fund has created multiple fake websites in the form of his original website. The miscreants have spread their links through email, SMS, WhatsApp.
It is difficult for an ordinary person to understand that these are fake websites unless they are verified very well. Many people from different parts of the country have been deceived by going to such links and giving financial help. Such allegations have also come to the notice of the police.
According to the Delhi Police, after the announcement of the Prime Minister, a fake UPI (technology to pay money directly to the account through mobile) ID was found under the pretext of taking more than eighty rupees.
Many people from home and abroad have given money to those pseudo accounts by stepping into the trap. The number of complaints has exceeded eight thousand. Even after the recent cyclone Ampan, who knows whether such a trap of money has fallen!
Time is more convenient for fraudsters, as more professionals are working on the Internet from home than usual, so many more people are spending more time on the Internet than usual, so the chances of catching cyber criminals are multiplied.
In order to spend time under house arrest, various fake offers of online streaming platforms are being spread. Internet users’ bank accounts, credit cards and personal information are being manipulated in various ways.
A Home Ministry source claimed in the media that such cyber-attacks had increased by 6 per cent in the four weeks from March to April after the lockdown began.
Government agencies, even the websites of many health organizations fighting the corona situation Macabella, are becoming the target of attacks by miscreants. The aim of the miscreants is to extort money or steal confidential information by hacking the service.
In the cyber world, the scourge of mischief does not seem to be slowing down. Because the country, as well as the whole world is thinking of starting a life with coronavirus.
In that case, increasing reliance on the Internet for various services including work from home, online market, banking is also inevitable while maintaining mutual distance.
How the state or the administration will control this cyber crime is a matter. And what we, the internet users, will do is one more thing.
Be careful yourself
It is important for us to be aware of the changing reality. The first step to be careful is not to believe anything you don’t find on the Internet.
