Behind the Hack: Watch How Easily Your Business Can Be Hacked
Hackers are looking for easy businesses to break into their IT systems. Thanks to automated tools, all businesses are being targeted by hackers all the time. They want to steal your data, your logins, or worse – hold your data to ransom.
Businesses who are at most risk believe they have nothing to lose. But these businesses are simple steppingstones for a hacker to obtain information and then attack the business’s clients, leaving the hacked company at fault and potentially bankrupt.
We partnered with a certified hacker to break into our computer using a “man in the middle” attack. He filmed it from both ends – as the hacker and what was happening on his victim’s machine.
In this video, the hacker uses a fake login portal to get you to give away your login credentials.
Every day, this hack is used to get full access to business-critical sensitive data by pretending to be you.
Instigated by a typical quarantine review email, our hacker has worked carefully to make sure it gets through to your primary inbox and looks completely legitimate. One-click takes the victim to their network login portal that also looks genuine. Once the credentials are entered, and you are allowed regular access, it’s too late. The hacker collected the victim’s credentials and now can access the same data as the victim.
The hacker can now re-send invoices and ask for payment details to be amended, stealing thousands of dollars. They can steal client information and even the victim’s identity. This can occur for days, weeks, even months until the victim changes their password.
