Hackers are smuggling malware behind fake copyright infringement emails


A new email campaign is seeking to encrypt as many endpoints (opens in new tab) with the Lockbit 2.0 ransomware as it can. Given the contents of the email being distributed, it would seem the campaign is aimed at webmasters and website owners.
