Operating System security
Find out how we can help you to secure your system and improve performance
System security plays vital role in protecting your computer against theft or damage by cyber criminals. Consumer devices, such as desktop computers, laptops or smartphones are often infected with malware in order to gather passwords to financial institutions, such as banks, for immediate financial gain from transferring money or making purchases. Hackers can also take control of other devices such as web cameras, microphones or GPS trackers to steal personal information about targeted person.
There are many different types of attacks:
Phishing – is the attempt to get personal information from user, mostly by sending email messages that appears to be from legitimate companies. Such emails contain redirects to fraudulent websites or links with malware.
Spoofing – is a form of impersonating device or user known to attacker in order to inject malware, steal information or bypass access control. It can be also used to spoof Wi-Fi access point and launch man in the middle attack.
Backdoors – is a technique to silently bypass operating system security and take control of computer or access its data.
Direct access attack – is a physical access to user computer in order to steal data or modify system or install keyloggers, malware and other software in order to take control of victim’s computer.
