Cyber threats explained

What are the most common cyber attacks?

Here are some of the top weapons used by hackers and cybercriminals:
  • Malware: malicious software that corrupts and steals data, usually once you click an attachment.
  • Ransomware: malicious software that infects your device and restricts access until a ransom is paid.
  • Phishing: email-based scams that pretend to be from trusted sources and lure you into providing data like your login and banking details.
