Cybercriminals may have infected these computers with viruses or install malicious software One example is keylogger malware which, when installed, captures the keystrokes of the computer’s users and sending this information to criminals via email. Through this malware, criminals are able to receive users’ personal information, such as name, credit card numbers, birthdates, and passwords.
Software piracy can often seem like a convenient way to get an application you need without having to pay for it. In addition to being unethical, it’s risky – there are no assurances that pirated software contains what it says it does or that it’s free from malware.
A lot of websites contain large “Install” buttons all but begging you to click them. You shouldn’t. They will usually give you adware or spyware instead of what you wanted or, worse, they’ll redirect you to a compromised website.
Hotel business centers, libraries, and cyber cafes provide computers that anyone can use. However, travelers cannot trust that these computers are secure. They may not be running the latest operating systems or have updated anti-virus software. Cyber criminals may have infected these machines with malicious viruses or install malicious software.
