Digital Threats 101

Digital Threats 101

Hackers and cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated about breaching our personal data on devices like smartphones, PCs, laptops and tablets, so digital threats are becoming more widespread than ever before. Since most of us aren’t educated on how to identify the internet activities that make us more vulnerable to digital threats, Total Defense’s security software can take care of them before we even know they exist. Malware threats are always evolving, and below are some new techniques hackers are using now to attack both business systems and personal devices. Here at Total Defense, we’re one step ahead of the trends and remain proactive about keeping your devices safe with our security software.

Skipping User Interaction

Malware is getting so sophisticated that users no longer need to click on any links or attachments for their device to become infected. Digital threats are now becoming “clickless,” and infecting shared access points like Microsoft’s SMB and RDP ports that were left open.

Avoiding Detection

Hackers are now stealing data by “living off the land,” which means they’re attacking through programs that are already installed on devices. They attack by using fewer files, going completely fileless, running simple scripts and/or using shellcode directly in memory. By creating less or no files, these attacks are easy to fly under the radar.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT)

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) are troublesome for devices because they persistently attack for months or sometimes years. This type of digital threat has grown in the past few years, but Total Defense’s security software can protect your business and personal devices against it.

Ransomware Aimed at Cloud Services

With the rise in popularity of cloud services, ransomware hackers will begin to set their aim on the cloud. The reason these cybercriminals target cloud services is because of the large amount of data stored on it and the large amount of people who use these services.

Virus-free. Hassle-free. Worry-free.

Security designed for people, around people.
