In Russia, there have been cases of fraud under the guise of a population census. People are called by phone and are supposedly trying to reconcile the data.

It is reported RBC with a link to data from Kaspersky Lab. Thus, fraudsters are testing a new scheme of deception, trying to steal personal data. Service analysts do not exclude that attackers can take advantage of the low level of digital literacy of some of the population and the fact that it is possible to take part in the census online.

In September, Kaspersky Lab recorded a slight increase in the number of phishing sites that counterfeit the government services portal.
