It seems like there’s hardly a week goes by without a report of some hack being perpetrated. Whether it’s passwords or pictures, credit cards or customer records the conclusion is invariably the same. Is it the defences that were weak or the attackers that have better tools and skills?
At a recent meeting of the infosec great and good it was suggested that hacker tools are rudimentary and that most hacks can be carried out with a basic knowledge – and of course some fundamental vulnerabilities to exploit. Perhaps it’s time to review your defences and prevent your precious pics from being snaffled.
