The Corona epidemic has not only affected the health of people all over the world, but it has also affected the economy. Many millions of people have lost their jobs, while most of the big companies are now doing work from home with their employees. The companies have not been able to recover their losses even after the lockdown has been lifted. People who have lost their jobs are constantly looking for new jobs. In such a situation, all the different websites are searching for jobs, but many of them are also falling prey to fraud. Something similar is happening with Linkedin users as well. Cybercriminals are seeking similar jobs, making users their victims and cheating on them.
According to the eSentire Security firm, a group of CyberAtackers has started targeting users looking for jobs. The group's name is Gulden Chickens, who has found a new way to mislead users. They send a link to give jobs to users' devices and then cheat them. It has been said in the report that this group promises to give the same job to the users on the same salary.
The research team of eSentire said that, if a member is on a big post on LinkedIn, then that user is sent the link with the same post and then the virus is inserted in his device. After this, the virus steals your personal information with banking details. Rob Mcleod, Senior Director of eSentire said that due to Corona, many people have lost their jobs. In such a situation, everyone needs a job right now, due to which people are getting caught in this trap easily.
On this matter, Linkedin said that, he is manually identifying fake accounts and blocking them forever. Many millions of people search for jobs on this platform. In such a situation, you have to pay attention here that the person with whom you are chatting or whose profile you have opened is original or fake. Along with the users, we are also paying attention to these accounts and blocking them.
