A PSA for those of us who are actively working from home:

Working at home can leave you open to hackers, even in normal times, and these aren't normal times. With one in four people in the US under orders to stay home to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, many more people are now working in their personal space, sometimes on their personal computers or phones. That makes a much wider target for hackers, cybersecurity experts say.

At home, it's less likely you're protected by the corporate software that can scan every link you click and every file you download for signs of danger. Additionally, your brain might be fried with worries about the spread of a disease that's threatening to overwhelm health care systems around the country, and by all the logistical problems that staying inside presents.
