Pandemic Email Scammers!
First things first, there are a bunch of fake emails going around that could be claiming themselves to be from WHO. Some emails claim that they are starting their new job in the world Health Organization and claiming they are from a specific area and demand money. One of the subject matter could be saying "Urgent New Coronavirus warning from the WHO." As the number of coronavirus cases increased, so too do internet scams and hoaxes. Real-looking emails supposedly from the World Health Organization and C.D.C. asking for money. These agencies do not ask for direct donations by email. If you click on a link or download an attachment from those emails, you could be giving hackers your personal information. So what we're looking at here is domain spoofing, and we see it greatly concerning the coronavirus in particular. This really has been totally unprecedented, the teams have never seen anything like this in their lifetimes. Uniting all different types of actors behind an available real pretext for people to do all kinds of things, whether it's stealing their password, is what we call credential phishing.
To prevent that from happening, we need two things: we need a way to verify ages, which is our I.D. system, and we need businesses to then check for their I.D's. Now imagine if that I.D. system was voluntary. So you have a bunch of adults who might not bother to get an I.D. Then, when they come to the bar, the business has a decision to make. Either they require I.D's, knowing full well that plenty of legitimate adults don't have one, or, to avoid pissing people off, they just let them in and maybe end up letting in some kids too by accident. Probably, every bar is going to make a slightly different decision. In comparison, That's similar to what we are now dealing with regarding email authentication.
