    COVID-19 Tracking Map Targeted

    The interactive map for tracking the spread of the virus, created by John Hopkins University, was targeted by hackers selling malware. Recognised cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs reported the case. The malware itself was designed for compromising the security of the map and infecting the devices of those who used it. To view the fake map, users are required to download software. The university is now aware of the malware that is impersonating the site and has warned those looking to use the map to trust only the COVID-19 tracking maps on the university’s website, as well as one create and maintained by ArcGIS.
