WhiteHat Security specialists alert for increased hackers activity and big amount of affected sites. It turns out that criminals become more efficient and the owners have still weak security on their pages.
WhiteHat Security tests real hacker attacks on big corporations sites using all present hackers tools. On the basis of daily hacking produce data with e-security norms use by major companies, which are hacking regularly. However, it is easier to attack smaller and less known sites. Just a few is enough to profit the same money.
Cybercriminals realizes that this activity is well paid, so they become more efficient constantly. The results of WhiteHat preventive attacks show that companies do not buy protection tools, security investments are deposited into the background, and page owners mistakenly believe that they are not attractive to criminals.
Meanwhile, independent reports indicate that the victim can be anyone. Media typically report on spectacular attacks, when every day in the shadow of big hacking smaller players become victims. Their first step of securing access to assets is encrypted data transfer (ftp servers, folders, documents, access to email, personal materials, logins etc.). It is important tool and companies which have been attack victims know it best. In the case of firm based on trust, confidence and accuracy (as health institutions, financial services, including all services with on-line transaction) attacks and stolen data can mean complete bankruptcy.
