The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is spreading globally at an alarming rate, and along with disruption in global health, it is also causing damages to social, economic and political systems all over the world.

Companies bear the brunt of these financial losses.

What made things a little more interesting than the usual kiddy attack was that the initial malware was not carrying a particularly nefarious payload, which meant that it escaped the usual malware detection that the client had deployed.
