Cybercriminals are again leveraging the COVID-19 pandemic for financial benefit. The latest FBI alert warns hackers are targeting the government and other healthcare industry buyers attempting to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) with business email compromise (BEC) scams.

The alert follows an earlier FBI warning that all sectors should expect an increase in BEC schemes tied to the pandemic.
