I received a link to a Covid vaccine "portal" website that apparently helps identify the next Pfizer vaccine appointment time among several vaccination locations.
This link is being shared on social media and being forwarded on.
The site looks suspicious to me for several reasons.
I'd like to ask the original "sharer" of the link to stop circulating the links until they are sure of the website's authenticity. The website certainly is targeting a big need at the moment, with people searching for next available appointment times and so the site "hit" rates could likely be rapidly rising.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to find out if the links / buttons on the website are malicious / contain viruses etc and general tips on how to check out the legitimacy of the website?
I'm not sure whether the rules allow me to share the website name (or whether its even wise to).
Also, just warning people to be mindful of responses from people who might step in and say it is legitimate without explaining why.
Mods - your advice/comments would be appreciated if you'd like to step in.
