  • Hacking is real and is constant process. Automated zombie botnet infected computers thousands of them are programmed to send phishing emails and ping ip address ports, malware is now found in brand new smart phones, Fake tech sopport webpages pop up, Fake techsupport phone calls to lo info users often give hackers access. ANY DIGITAL DEVICE THAT CAN BE UPDATED , CAN BE HACKED, AND SADLY MANY USERS ARE BEING MENTALLY HACKED WITH SOCIAL ENGINEERING AND FEAR WARE TACTICS. BE PARANOID AND SUSPICIOUS OF EVERYTHING, USE STRONG LONG COMPLEX PASSWORDS, NOT THE SAME ON EVERY LOGIN. ITS BEEN A WAR FOR 20 YEARS, IF YOU DID’NT KNOW, YOU DO NOW. GOOGLE IT!

  • Most people don’t realize that they have been hacked until it’s too late. The best hackers are the ones who are good at covering their tracks and usually aren’t found until they have pretty much all of your data and have used it to make a fortune or for blackmail.

    The best prevention is to make sure all of your security software is up to date and your PC is scanned regularly and also protected by multiple security programs instead of just one.

  • Our society and governments are so dependent on computers these days that I shudder to think what the consequences of a major shut down would be. We have come a long way from the hole in the bucket. Most of us are hopeless when to comes to fixing computer problems.
