Unit 4: Option 3

Data and information is being stored in large amounts every day by individuals. With more trust in the cyber space, it is important to understand what new threats there may be to your information. One which is always recurring and continues is the theft of payment details through accounts on gaming services such as Xbox and PlayStation. Consider the many PSN hacks over the past fifteen years in which the service has been hacked; whilst these flaws have been addressed, hackers are continually attempting to break through the firewall to and steal this information. Phishing is a common way that hackers can gain access to these accounts, however many hackers will still be attempting to break through the firewall at the main data server level.
