It is worth remembering about safety.
Attacks that have gone down in history
We're constantly hearing about newer and newer cases of attacks wreaking havoc not only on our disks, but also in our wallets. A simple example can be ransomware, NotPetya, which caused losses of hundreds of millions of dollars in many organizations. Just read the information from the FedEx shipping company. The US company has valued the costs associated with this cyber attack at $ 400 million.
If someone says that it is a typical corporate virus, then we should remember another known case of ransomware that blackmailed users of infected computers. Talking about WannaCrythat attacked over three hundred thousand computers in nearly a hundred countries. Interestingly, the authors quite … ambitiously approached the topic, because the new window that appeared on the screens of the screens displayed a payment request in, note twenty-eight languages. There were, of course, Polish. In addition to private users, WannaCry has to some extent reached Deutsche Bahn, Telefonica or even the British National Health Service.
Viruses that work in secret
Sometimes it is so that we do not even know that we have fallen victim to an attack. Some viruses work in secret and we can be to some extent "helpers" of the cybercriminal. We are talking here about DDoS attacks, which cause that in a moment hundreds of thousands of computers are trying to reach a specific site chosen by the author of the malware. The site is down because the server cannot cope with so many queries. Not only that, the process is somewhat impossible to stop.
Another hidden way cybercriminals use is popular cryptocurrency mining. Our computer is charged with additional work, which is forced by malware, and we do not even know that … we earn the author of the virus. You probably don't need to be told that virtually most websites may be affected by malicious software that can cause many problems by infecting our hardware. So it's worth using a comprehensive solution that will protect your computer and smartphone from cybercriminals' attacks.
