Royal Wedding presents commercial opportunity as hackers abuse the forthcoming nuptials
Imperva's CTO - Amichai Shulman, said, "Everyone loves a good wedding and it appears hackers are no different. While we're not surprised by the results it is worrying that criminals are systematically jumping on every opportunity to illegally make money by identifying, and utilising, revenue generating opportunities that utilise stolen credentials or inject malware."
Individuals can protect themselves, and steer clear of attacks, by:
- Not responding to emails from people they don't know offering leaked information or sharing secrets from someone 'close to the happy couple'
- Make sure their computer's security software is up to date
Shulman concludes "The royal wedding is another reminder that organisations need to be vigilant to hosting phishing sites and act promptly to take them down if non-security savvy individuals are to be protected. ."
