Microsoft warns windows 10 users to look out for new threat attacking PCs.
Microsoft have issued a warning about a new phishing campaign that windows 10 users need to be aware of.
The new threat lets a hacker take over their machine and execute commands remotely. The scam begins with an email being sent claiming to offer an important update on COVID-19, and the message features an Excel document attachment.
Microsoft have warned people about the ongoing phishing scam which tries to take advantage of peoples concerns over the coronavirus.
Once the attachment is opened the NetSupport Manager remote administration tool is installed.
The hacking tool is a trojan that gives a threat actor access to an infected machine.
If you think you may already have been infected then you should assume your data has been compromised and that a malicious party has tried to steal your passwords.
