Hackers are currently running a Pokémon NFT card game website to distribute hacking tools to take control of victims’ devices. The fake website, which looks legitimate, is loaded with malware and, at the moment, mainly targets Microsoft Windows users.
How do you get infected?
If you visit the fake website and click on the ‘Play on PC’ button, malware is downloaded to your computer, giving hackers full access to your system and all the data.
