Consequences of being UnSecured
1. Your Identity Could be Stolen
If you have signed up to lots of sites you are most likely to use one password for all of them so it’s easy to remember. If the hackers get into one account then you are in great danger as they could try to access all your other accounts using the same password.
Identity thieves can do a lot of things with your account and here are a few: Use your identity to access your Bank Accounts , Access important/confidential information from Social Networking Sites, Delete your Accounts, For Emails – spamming your contacts, send your contacts emails containing adwares
Things that could leave you open to Attack
– Leaving the login page’s “Remember my password“ checked.
– Forgetting to logout (especially if you’re in a cyber cafe)
– Website Spoofed/Phished – you have normally entered your username and password into a website whose design is adopted to the website you should be in, like Yahoo! These fake websites can even have the same URL as the target website.
– Accessing a computer with Keylogger installed on it
2. Your Computer Could Crash
This is the aftermath of having so many viruses, spyware and adware inside your system. These viruses and spywares are often times than not, from programs downloaded or from storage gadgets inserted to your computer.
Adwares like spywares install themselves. They typically display advertisements once you go online. And this slows down your computer.
If you have a lot of important personal and work files you would be out of your wits knowing that you have lost months and maybe years work!
3. Denial of Service (DoS) Attack
This is the most unfortunate thing that can happen to any organization with operations running through Internet.
Denial of Service (DoS) Attack is the pursuit of making a computer deprived of doing its usual tasks and its services unavailable to its users. Where most of the victims of this attack are those sites such as banks, credit card payment gateways, etc.
