Cybercriminals Target Veterans Looking for Civilian Employment
Taking advantage of anyone is unacceptable. However, when it targets our warriors who are seeking civilian employment at the end of their military service, I find it infuriating. Cybercriminals set up an organizational website explicitly geared to veterans looking for private jobs. When a veteran visited the site and installed the job search application, it immediately infected their computer with malware that allowed the criminals to take over their device. The website was called Hire Military Heroes (HMH). Never download applications on websites that you cannot easily authenticate.
