Individuals and small-business owners should watch for suspicious or unexpected emails that appear to be from the Small Business Administration or that direct the recipient to the SBA’s website for COVID-19 relief. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency in an Aug. 12 alert shared Friday by the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights warned that a malicious cyber actor is using phishing emails to spoof the SBA’s COVID-19 loan relief website…The phishing emails include a malicious link to the spoofed webpage, which the cyber actor then uses to redirect the recipient and steal credentials.
