WARNING: NEW QR CODE SCAM
Matt Case - October 19th - 7:27am PST
Pause for a moment before scanning your next QR code, as cybercriminals have devised a method to exploit them for financial theft. This emerging threat, known as 'quishing,' involves fraudsters concealing counterfeit QR codes at parking facilities.
Consequently, when you attempt to make a payment, you unwittingly scan the fraudulent code, which may either inject malware into your mobile device or pilfer your credit card details under the guise of a legitimate transaction. Stay vigilant to safeguard your finances and personal information when using QR codes.
