Don’t Let BYOD become BYOV (Bring your own viruses)

Don’t Let BYOD become BYOV (Bring your own viruses) | Social media and education | Scoop.it
The return of IM worms, such as the recent Skype threat, underscores a risk that IT managers face in an increasingly BYO world.

 

It was an early form of consumerization with people bringing the applications they used in their personal lives into the workplace. Call it a “BYOA” approach: Bring Your Own Application. Always being ready to adapt to emerging trends, attackers started crafting malware that would exploit the weaknesses these new applications introduced into the workplace. Attackers adapted methods that worked so well with email worms like the ILOVEYOU worm of 2000 to create a new kind of worm that could spread even faster over IM networks.

Mobile Devices: The Gateway for Hackers to Your Digital Identity

Mobile Devices: The Gateway for Hackers to Your Digital Identity | Social media and education | Scoop.it

While it is widely understood that mobile devices are more than just phones – they are a lifeline to the outside world, entertainment platform, GPS system, little black book and a shopping and banking tool – it’s lesser known that these devices are also gateways. Mobile devices can be used by a hacker as an access point into many other aspects of your digital life as well the lives of others in your network, making mobile security about more than just protecting your phone.


Hackers can use your mobile device as an access point to data that have historically been exclusively stored to your laptop or desktop, such as social network and bank accounts. One of the most harmful (and popular) mobile threats has to do with apps. Installing apps from unknown or untrusted sources like apps outside the official Google Play Market could allow hackers to steal sensitive and private information stored on your mobile device including passwords, photos, contacts and location data.

Critical Thinking: "While it is widely understood that mobile devices are more than just phones", really!?? Most people still think that it is ONLY a phone, but in reality it is a mini computer with phone capabilities! And any computer is vulnerable and at risk!!!
