 Salute to YCS Frontliners

As COVID-19 has devastated the state of New Jersey, time feels like it has slowed to a standstill. While most of us have stayed and worked at home for several weeks now, others -- especially the YCS essential workers who continously work in the frontline – have diligently carried out their tasks amid the fear of being infected by the life threatening virus. We salute you, our frontliners, for your dedication in sustaining the key functions of the agency: the care and protection of YCS children.

  Spike of Phishing During This Pandemic

Our fears are “business opportunities” to some, and so we see the rise of cyber-attacks all over the world, and YCS systems and network are no exemption. In fact, cyber-attacks have almost doubled in the months of February and March this year. Cyber criminals are exploiting the current pandemic, and use it as emotional bait in sending phishing emails.

Most of these phishing emails have Microsoft Word or PDF attachments laced with malware that present fictitious safety measures or infection maps about COVID-19, or hyperlinks to donation page to help victims of corona virus asking you to donate money in a form of bitcoin. Other malicious emails entice you to download and install apps which gather personal information about you when you use these trojan horse programs.

Cyber criminals don’t limit themselves to phishing. Some of these criminals bought domain names, the reason why there are hundreds of potentially shady websites that suddenly popped up on the Internet that claim to offer discounted face masks, and other virus-protection related gears. Beware, there is no guarantee that some of these products even exist.

With public concerns around COVID-19 are growing, there will be scam attempts referencing the corona virus. Thus, we encourage you to be extra cautious despite the SPAM filtering device we put in place that block unwanted emails going unto our mail servers. Here are some friendly suggestions on how to protect yourself from these malicious emails and fraudulent websites:

Against Malicious Emails:

  • Make sure you know the sender of an email.
  • Do not click the links of an email or open any attachments unless you are absolutely sure the email is authentic.
  • Should you really feel to open a link, place your mouse pointer over the link to see if it is actually sending you to the right website.
  • Be extra cautious if the email tone is urgent.

Against Malicious Websites:

  • Make sure URLs are spelled correctly.
  • Directly type the URL in the search bar instead of clicking a provided link.
  • When shopping on the Internet, check to see if the website address starts with HTTPS or there is a padlock icon.
  • Never use unsecured public WIFI when shopping or doing banking online.
