Dos attacks are now everyday occurrences. Whether you’re a small non-profit or a huge multinational conglomerate, your online services—email, websites, anything that faces the internet—can be slowed or completely stopped by a DoS attack. Moreover, DoS attacks are sometimes used to distract your cybersecurity operations while other criminal activity, such as data theft or network infiltration, is underway.In this cyberattack, the cyber-criminal uses the bandwidth of the victim’s network or fills their e-mail box with spammy mail. Here, the intention is to disrupt their regular services.
Theft of software by illegally copying genuine programs or counterfeiting. It also includes the distribution of products intended to pass for the original.
Pharming is when cybercriminals redirect your Internet traffic to fake websites to steal your personal information and money. This type of attack often targets banking and shopping websites, as well as government sites.
It is an act of getting one computer system or a network to pretend to have the identity of another computer. It is mostly used to get access to exclusive privileges enjoyed by that network or comput.
Unfortunately, many of these crimes harmfully impact millions of people, bringing a halt to several high-scale operations and posing a threat to massive databases. Cybersecurity measures are the only real solution to cybercrime which is why cybersecurity is important for businesses.
