Risk of searching for coronavirus-related websites

Cybercriminals are exploiting interest in the global epidemic to spread malicious activity through several spam campaigns relating to the outbreak of the virus, as per Check Point's Global Threat Index. As the virus spreads across the globe, people are naturally searching online for the latest information and updates on how it might affect them, and what they can do to protect themselves and their families. And as you might expect, cyber-criminals are quick to take advantage of these concerns for their own gain. Since January 2020, based on Check Point Threat Intelligence, there have been over 4,000 coronavirus-related domains registered globally. Out of these websites, 3% were found to be malicious and an additional 5% are suspicious.
