Hackers Abound While Owners are Distracted by Virus
While our customers are off being compliant with self distancing themselves, we at NetCetra have noticed a sudden up sweep in the number of attacks and phishing. Perhaps their day jobs are on hold also. Whatever the reasons, there is a trend of an increase in attacks.
The hackers may believe that we are too busy viewing the Market Roller coaster, or busy trying to make certain our staffs and businesses are going to ride this out and come back stronger. They believe that we are too busy to pay attention to our websites, and have decided to strike while we are distracted.
Make certain that your emails are truly correct and not a virus being sent to destroy your computer, website and business. Examine every interaction that you have, which I am certain, have increased ten fold since the shutdowns and social distancing began.
Be very careful who you answer and what you download. Remember, your computer, site and business are only as safe as you make it!
