Fraudsters now targeting 'softer' social and other networks
Why cant the title say "Social Networks an easier target for hackers than banks"?
To makes it more relevant to gamming otherwise the title shouldn't be on this website and should be on techspy
If it is possible with PSN, then why not mention other gaming networks? I doubt they are all fraud free.
Nothing is 100% safe in the digital age.
nothing is safe unless its under your bed and you have a shotgun handy . even then its still not 100% safe lol
Yeah the shotgun could go off :)
If you are worried about your personal data, you better cancel your internet subscription, delete your Facebook accounts, turn of the computer and never go online ever again. Nothing is 100% secure, because you always have to take into the equation that in most cases the issue is due to human error, which isn't something you can easily fix.
Everything is online, more company's have you apply for a job over the internet and theirs even sites that can tell you about a persons background.
exactly.... im ok to place my card on a best buy website and other etailers... as the saying goes if the robber truly wants to get in they will get in thats all
It should say everything online is easier to target for hackers then banks. But some people would just robber a bank, you are more likely to get the money.
Just like breaking into a car is easier than breaking into mall
Believe it or not its much easier to steal someones details from simply infecting a system with a keylogger or a phishing e-mail since its a lot easier then going to the effort of physically hacking a system which takes dedication and a great deal of effort. I'm not defending Sony, from the sounds of it they should have had more than just CC details encrypted but you would be quite surprised that alot of stolen details come from viral infections or that someone has willingly shared their information. Again no system is 100% secure for someones who determined.
How I would love someone to hack the banks, someone genuine who will give us all our charges back and wipe all debt, that would be great, bankers are ruining the world right now.
yeah it's easier because people are morons and don't know the difference between a hack and a phishing scam.
