Microsoft is warning of an ongoing COVID-19 themed phishing campaign that installs the NetSupport Manager remote administration tool.

In a series of tweets, the Microsoft Security Intelligence team outlines how this “massive campaign” is spreading the tool via malicious Excel attachments.

The attack starts with emails pretending to be from the Johns Hopkins Center, which is sending an update on the number of Coronavirus-related deaths there are in the United States.
