Ransomware's scary, but Business emails are scarier
We’ve all been trained to be afraid of just about everything on the internet. Malware, scams, and all sorts of threats reside just beyond the click of a mouse. But, what’s the biggest threat? Well, according to Secureworks (via Techradar), business emails are responsible for more attacks than ransomware.
Ransomware is a nasty thing. It encrypts your computer’s hard drive so that you can’t use it. In order to get your computer back in working order, you’ll need to send a certain amount of money to the attacker.
Ransomware was the most popular attack vector. However, the winds of change are blowing. Secureworks did a study of more than 500 real attacks that took place between January and December last year.
