There are many phishing email schemes in Miami that seem too good to be true. You might get an email or pop up as an advertisement, promising money or other luxuries. Then, as they expect, you go opening these without even thinking. Sooner than later, you might find that something horrible has happened to you, as a result of a scam.
You may have your identity stolen or money taken out of your bank account. But you also will experience an invasion of a malware that infects your computers. The truth is, you can never be too careful by having the proper programs installed.
Having your computer activity tracked is not unusual. It’s most likely to happen when you are using the internet. As a result, you could find more strange emails, bizarre ads or even worse.
The malware may also be starting back doors on your company. A hacker stealing company information is very common. So imagine if a hacker stole your company secrets and sold them to your competitors? What would happen in the event that they destroyed your backups?
One terrible instance of Phishing is when you click a link in an e-mail and your whole laptop goes black. Next, you get a message demanding a stressful fee before your files get deleted forever. This is a Ransomware attack and in 2017, attacks like these exploded into a full scale business model.
