2018 has nearly started but don’t think for a second that hackers waste any time. Malware attacks will definitely continue to be on hackers’ list this year and the future doesn’t sound bright for Americans in terms of digital privacy.
Here are some of the major online risks that happened so far:
Hackers still search for credit card information
LockPoS started to make damages since 2017, but was only recently discovered. Constantly looking for data that looks like credit card details, LockPoS malware steals payment card information from the memory of computers; and it has been doing that so well that it was quite difficult to detect.
Americans’ human rights diminished even more
Online privacy in the United States is simply sinking deeper and deeper. Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted in favor of extending the NSA’s right of extended online surveillance for the next six years.
