Taking advantage of the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday, when demand for online transactions, payments, gifts and to send lucky money increases, many hacker groups are stepping up their fraudulent activities aimed at users of banking services and e-wallets.

CyRadar JSC recently warned about two online attacks targeting the users of 27 banks and e-wallets.

Experts said that many websites which are still in the building process or cybercriminals who just point domain names to the server and prepare for future fraud campaigns have also been discovered.
