#cyberfraud | #cybercriminals | Beware of Possible Coronavirus Related Scams – NBC10 Philadelphia

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The coronavirus pandemic isn’t only a threat to your health. It could open you up to a scam. Law enforcement and cyber security experts are warning of potential schemes.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are telling local police departments to beware of CDC impersonators. The CDC warns schemers may go door-to-door claiming to be from the organization. Several local police departments are getting the word out on social media.

Camden County Police Detective Maria Rivera wants residents to beware of the potential threat.

Unfortunately, this is the world we live in,” she told NBC10 Responds. “The CDC has not given approval to anyone to go to anyone’s home and request any type of health information or personal information or any of your credentials.”

According to Rivera, if someone comes to your home for this reason, close the door and call police.

Scammers are also hiding behind computer screens.

“Now they’re really doubling down,” cybersecurity expert Mark Ostrowski said.

With more people working from home, Ostrowski is concerned hackers may look for weaknesses in a company’s remote network.

“Change your passwords, lock down your Wi-Fi so that you know which users are connected because that plays a big role,” Ostrowski said.

According to Ostrowski, hackers will likely target areas with larger clusters of coronavirus cases. He warns personal and work mobile devices are also vulnerable.

“People don’t often think about, you know, adding security software to the mobile device,” Ostrowski said. “And that’s something that’s going to have to change.”

The Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities is warning of financial scams. It warns: don’t share your financial information with anyone who calls you unsolicited. If someone contacts you with a “limited time offer” and applies pressure tactics, don’t take the bait. Finally, be cautious of any offer that guarantees a high rate of return with little risk.

CISCO #STOCK #DIPS ON POSSIBLE #RUSSIAN #HACKING

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) is trading lower today, after the company announced that a group of hackers have compromised more than 500,000 routers and other devices in several countries. Cisco suspects this was the work of the Russian government, and its ultimate plan was to launch a major cyber attack on Ukraine. Shares of CSCO have shed 0.8% on the news, last seen at $43.28, falling back below the 80-day moving average and pacing for their lowest close since April 13. This trendline, a previous level of support, was brought back into play by the stock’s post-earnings bear gap last Thursday.

Longer term, the networks specialist has been strong on the charts, up 36.4% over the last year. This technical success has earned the stock almost exclusively bullish attention from analysts, with 18 of the 20 in coverage saying to buy the shares. Also, the average one-year price target from this group is $49.74, which prices in upside of almost 15%.

Options traders across the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) have been bullish, too. CSCO sports a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 3.07 across these exchanges, a number that ranks in the top quartile of its annual range. So not only has call buying tripled put buying, but such a preference for calls over puts is pretty rare.

It’s a similar setup in today’s trading, despite the pullback, with call volume tripling put volume, and the July 44 call coming in as the most popular. But considering Cisco has a Schaeffer’s Volatility Index (SVI) of 18%, which ranks in the low 12th annual percentile, even put buyers can at least rest assured they’re getting relatively low volatility premiums at the moment.

Police forwarded new information to prosecutors that they believe could result with a human trafficking charge being filed against a former Muskogee firefighter who already faces several sex crimes.
