The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) on Monday warned computer users to be wary of phishing scams related to recent natural disasters in China and Myanmar.
"Phishing scams may appear as requests for donations from a charitable organization asking users to click on a link that will take them to a fraudulent website that appears to be a legitimate charity," US-CERT said. "The users are then asked to provide personal information that can further expose them to future compromises."
