Unit 4

  1. Share your thoughts on what you imagine to be the future of cyber attacks. Consider the types of information we store and share online today. What information will hackers try to get in the future? What approaches do you think they will use?

Since we are facing a worldwide online purchasing market now along with the pandemic of covid that is happening preventing people from travelling or even going outdoors. It is highly likely that hackers will see this as an opportunity to prey on online buyers that are making purchases. Online credit card information has been known to be stolen every now and then online however, this issue can be rectified and cancelled off immediately once the victim finds out what is happening and informs his/her bank to cancel the purchase or transaction. A future or a way that hackers can hack would be to create a fake website or a link that looks extremely similar to a famous or well known shopping site which customers could go to, this would allow the hackers to receive the money that customers pay thinking that it is the original website. By the time the customers finds out that their items were not delivered it might be too late to get the money back.
