The hacking field is wide and I am not a master in that field. So, I just want to talk in a small scope or personal scope. When we talk about personal hacking, usually it’s because of money or lust. For example in a Bank system, it’s impossible to hack a bank, because every bank has a strong security system. The weakest system is customers. Hackers usually attack customers and a lot of hackers get what they want even though with no high computer skills.
Hackers will attack the weakest system.
If someone asks you to give a photocopy of your identity card, will you give it to that person? I think you will not. Because there is personal information there. But people put a lot of information on Facebook, including phone number, address, date of birth, and photo. Let’s say they put information on their Facebook account because they trust that Facebook will not attack them and will not be hacked by people. But are they considering who can access the information on their Facebook account? Because people can easily accept friends even with unrecognized people.
There are a lot of frauds on the internet. We heard a lot of people being friends on Facebook, and there are a lot of people being victims on Facebook too. Of course, not all people are bad on the internet, making networks also can be done from there. Being insecure about internet security is not wise. The challenge is about considering the risk form putting information or giving access from websites or applications that you use. (yg)
