Cybercrime is a growing problem and it’s important to understand some of the different types of cybercrimes that exist.
#1 Malware: Malware is malicious software designed to spy on or damage a computer system without the user’s knowledge. It can be used to steal personal data, install malicious software, or hijack a computer system. Malware is commonly spread through email attachments or links, malicious downloads, and infected websites.
#2 Phishing: Phishing is a form of fraud where an attacker attempts to gain access to a user’s personal information by sending emails or messages that appear to be from a legitimate source. The messages typically contain links or attachments that can lead to malicious websites or downloads.
#3 Social Engineering: Social engineering is a type of attack that uses deception to manipulate people into divulging confidential information. Attackers may use phishing emails or create fake websites that look legitimate in order to trick victims into providing their personal information.
