Cybercriminals Increase Hacks Targeting Businesses
Hikvision Tips to Prevent Exploits and Account Hacks
Cybercriminals are increasing hacks targeting businesses according to the article in Canadian Security magazine, “Cybercriminals manipulate their way into company computers.”
From the article: “Phishing scams often use social engineering. The scams are usually disguised in realistic-looking emails that encourage the recipient to click on a link or attachment; that click downloads malicious software known as malware that can capture information and send it back to the criminal. The emails can look like they come from a company’s bank or another business. … When it comes to hacking into websites, cybercriminals still look for vulnerabilities that they can exploit, but it’s their ability to scam companies that causes many of the problems …”
Cybercriminals often hack into systems through a backdoor, by hitting a third-party such as a supplier, which was the case in the 2013 Target retail security breach. Another entry point is via phishing when an employee clicks on an email link. Hikvision outlined ways to identify phishing in this blog.
