A malspam campaign is actively distributing Emotet payloads via emails that warn the targets of coronavirus infection reports in various prefectures from Japan, including Gifu, Osaka, and Tottori.
To scare the potential victims into opening malicious attachments, the spam emails — camouflaged as official notifications from disability welfare service provider and public health centers — promise to provide more details on preventative measures against coronavirus infections within the attachments.

What surprises me about these emails sent to Japan is that the sentences are surprisingly natural in Japanese. In the past, many were written in broken grammar, and reading the text could infer suspicion.

In English, they are always like written by a 6-year-old... and yet, many people are falling for that.
