Cyber Crime is on the rise, which is no surprise being that someone stole the bike I stole. Just kidding. It being reported that malware it at an all time high. Which is surprisingly at the same time the economy is looking pretty damn low. So it in turn some shady cyber criminals are injecting a small script into the SQL databases. Which will turn around and send the information that its requesting back to it “home” the shady creepy in a dark basements computer. . Which would be your credit card info, your social security number, or the fact you like girls in latex, and and Asian girls. Wait that me. Heres basically how it works.
Financial services are getting hit the hardest during these times. The second types of of places getting targeted are financial payment company’s. PayPal has not mentioned any problems with security, nor would they. These are the companies that are getting targeted however. Even organized crime is getting invloved in this raquet. Roger Halbheer, chief security advisor of Microsoft EMEA says, “If there are rumors of a takeover or a merger, information can become desirable for organized crime circles. Auction bids for a laptop of a CEO amongst criminal organizations can reach seven digit figures.”
Not to scare the world, but most companies have been preached within the last two years, but since cyber crime is up, so is the security. So if you haven’t been hacked, either you use a Mac, or you’ve been lucky. Fear not though you Mac haters malware is being developed to attack Mac, and no one is lucky forever. “Protect Ya Neck” – Wu-Tang and also for once Kevin Mitnick is not to blame.
