Hackers are now targeting your router

Hackers are now targeting your router | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

It's time for a router emergency call to 911. You knew about hackers stealing our credit cards from retailers, the NSA spying on anyone who picked up a cellphone or writes an email, and ad trackers watching our every move and purchase.

 

Hang on, we've got a string of recent reports of router vulnerabilities. Backdoors have been found in NetGear and Linksys routers , two of the biggest sellers. A host of other brand names including D-Link, Micronet, Tenda and others have also been the subject of mass attacks that let hackers hijack your browser, produce fake search results, and download malware into all the devices connected to your network.

 

Yes, it's possible and it's happening. Take a deep breath. Here's what you need to do to secure your router and save money too.

The Internet of Things – a new cybercrime target.

The Internet of Things – a new cybercrime target. | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
The benefits that the Internet of Things can bring are numerous, but so are the concerns that it can facilitate cyber attacks.

 

As we are entering the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), our homes are becoming increasingly populated by devices that are connected to the Internet in order to share information with each other and the external world more easily.

 

Ranging from smart phones and smart TVs to motor-cars with 4G and Wi-Fi, from automated household appliances to sophisticated business tools, this web – connected smart devices are collectively known as the Internet of Things.

 

According to a Ciscoreport, it’s predicted that 50 billion objects worldwide will be connected to the internet by 2020.

Study: One New Identity Fraud Victim Every Two Seconds

Study: One New Identity Fraud Victim Every Two Seconds | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
Javelin Strategy also reports that one in three people who received a data breach notification in 2013 became a victim of identity fraud.

 

According to the results of Javelin Strategy & Research's 2014 Identity Fraud Study, there were a total of 13.1 million identity fraud victims in 2013, or one victim every two seconds (h/t Dark Reading).

 

That's an increase of more than 500,000 fraud victims over the previous year, and the second-highest number since the study was launched in 2006 -- in 2009, the study reported 13.9 million identity fraud victims.

RATE 17: This article is another example of online identities gone wrong. It explains in good detail and structure the risks online and the attention that needs to be paid to ones individual online identity.

Often Asked Questions: Are WE Becoming Too Paranoid About Cyber-Security?

Often Asked Questions: Are WE Becoming Too Paranoid About Cyber-Security? | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
. . Are WE Becoming Too Paranoid About Cyber-Security? This is a question I get asked very often, and I got remembered again by my online friend Doug PETERSON ===> @dougpete <=== about it on ...

 

Shouldn’t WE Have A bit Of Paranoia Anyway!?

A good question back, isn’t it? My direct answer to this would be, YES! A healthy paranoia attitude, why!? Let us try to go a bit for Deep-THINKing if YOU permit  Let us ALSO try to make a comparison between the Real-World and the Virtual-World (the internet). WHEN YOU take the time to compare both worlds YOU would find out that there really few differences, apart that the internet is technology driven and that WE connect global on instantly actions…

@Aleatha SHEPLEY: Hi, sorry; BUT that's something business can't do!!! It's up to everybody to take its responsibility and to learn the basics of Cyber-Security and to forge a bit their character ;) Awareness!!! Same as in the Real-World, there people are ALSO responsible for their own weakness ;) Have a great day :)

I totally agree - Cybersecurity is MY problem should be the catchcry of everyone in the business.
