Tlps to Help You Avoid Being Attacked Install Antivirus Software Lock Your Wi-FI Only Online Shop Secure Sites SALE Use a Firewall Cybercrime is an unpleasant fact ffexeveryone who accesses the internet. Because our society is now web-based, so to speak, there are many more opportunities for hackers and cybercriminals to get a hold of person information. A cyber-attack may be something minor such as cracking the password to your email account and spamming your friends. However, much larger attacks indude stealing money from your bank account and assuming your identity to go on a shopping spree. Cybercrime has reached an all-time high and is predicted to keep moving upwards. While having someone break into your email and spam all of your contacts with nonsense may sound horrible to you, it could be much worse. With a few apology emails or phone calls and the change of your password, you are probably home free. However, bigger issues come when you become a victim of identity theft. A hacker may gain access to your personal information such as bank account and password. Moreover, you may fall victim to an unyielding iden tity thief who assumes your role in the financial marketplace. You will begin to see astronomical transactions on your bank account. Perhaps the thief is smarter than to be caught right away and uses your credit card or checking account to make several smaller purchases. In the end, it all adds up and it can take years to correct. This is just one form of cybercrime. Many others are happening. The best defense is to educate yourself about types of internet crimes and searching for ways to protect yourself.
