Hackers targeting vulnerable users
Alexis Savsey, senior malware analyst at Avast, said tech support fraud is now commonplace. Hackers target the weakest users. Hackers exploit victims through money or personal data. No one will ever call or message you in front of a legal technical support team. If a call or message comes in this way, you should avoid connecting with it. They should not be given access to their device or share personal data. Hackers can take advantage of access to your bank account, health records or necessary services.
