TousAntiCovid: don’t be fooled by this fake SMS
In recent days, a phishing campaign has been circulating by SMS. Messages pretending to be those of the government, invite victims to install the TousAntiCovid application. If the message looks like the one sent by the administration a few days ago, it is in fact a fake. The link in the SMS thus sends not to the application, but to a malicious program aimed at recovering your banking data.
