Actually, the "lowest" any criminal can get is when they take a human life with the money motive being the reason for the murder.

I mean, is anyone really surprised the criminal elements would use that conflict to do what we are being informed about by the FBI?

Truthfully, charities have been a target of scams for a very long time, and even before these Net crimes came about.

Criminal folks just ain't too cool. But I should be very careful. I've never been convicted in a court of law, but I have been jailed a few times for fighting. And a couple of those times was for fighting law enforcement folks that had gone too far while doing their job. Last time, though, I didn't know the fella was an undercover cop.

Point is that maybe I am a semi-criminal. I smoked a joint once many, many years ago when that was illegal. Funny, too, as that was with a cop; an MP.

Anyway, using charities for cover in a criminal manner to get money is nothing new.

L.S.

Additionally to what my good forum friend, Asyn, posted on the new emotet variant earlier here.

Emotet-malware steals your creditcard data from inside Google Chrome.
Analysis: https://www.joesandbox.com/analysis/326849/1/html

We see three windows executables involved: winword executable,
out there to lure you to lower your defenses by executing macro's etc.
The actual powershell.exe to siphon your data out, the actual E-banking fraud.
Conhost.exe as system executable (to bypass AV-detection).

Would voodooshield and/or OSArmor have signalled
the bad actions of these windows executables right away,
as MS do not describe these as vulnerabilities, but rather qualifies them as "features".

So now one understands why not to run Windows OS as admin, whenever you can avoid it.
Good over 70% of av-vendors now will detect and flag emotet for the devious malware it is.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
