Fake CDC Emails Warning of Flu Pandemic Push Ransomware

ISD’s Information Security Division has received reports of phishing emails that claim to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning of flu pandemic. Attached to the emails is a malicious attachment that when opened will install the GandCrab v5.2 Ransomware on the target's computer.
