How to avoid the danger of cyber attack

In today's age of technology, everyone is using computers in one form or another. Smartphone has become a part of everyone's life. Computers, as well as smartphones, are now being used by a large number of people not only for conversations but also for video chats, e-mail messaging, e-banking transactions, social media connectivity etc.

While the use of these devices has increased, thefts, scams and frauds related to them have also arisen. These are known as cyber-crime. In the days to come, many such incidents are to be read and heard. There has been a significant increase in these incidents during the covid-19 lockdown. Thousands of cyber-attacks have been reported in the last few days. Nothing can be said about how much truth there is in these reports but still, we must be vigilant. Most of us computer and smartphone users will be unaware of this.

So, we need to know how hackers can hack into our computers or smartphones and carry out cyber-attacks. In common parlance, a fish's favourite object is attached to a net or hook to catch a fish, which automatically pulls the fish into the net and traps it. Exactly the same technique is used by these hackers to hack devices. Here the hacker displays some tempting things in front of the users as fodder so that they get attracted quickly. Like he has some attractive offers or he sends a message stating that you are getting so much cashback from the bank or you have won so many dollars. Click on this link or download this app to claim it. A message or e-mail is designed to be sent by a real bank or office. No one reading him Quickly opens that link or download the app and grant all kinds of permissions, such as calls, messages, location, camera, storage permissions, etc. Many people download third-party applications or crack software that is not trusted to use paid applications/software for free. 

When we give these apps or software all sorts of permissions, our smartphone or computer gets hacked, meaning that all control is in the hands of the hacker and we don't even know it. Such apps are called spyware apps or spy software and links sent via e-mail messages are called spam. 

Once the hacker has somehow managed to install this adware into your phone or computer, he can remotely control your phone from the comfort of his home via the Internet. He can call from your phone, record / listen to your call, read your messages/emails, send to anyone, use the camera. In many cases, you will not even notice this phenomenon.

It turns out that if a hacker is to gain control of your computer or smartphone, he or she must install some adware software on your devices, without which it is impossible for him or her to do so. Now the question arises how can we finally protect our smartphone or computer from being hacked? The answer lies in the discussion above. We need to be careful not to download any modified or third-party application or crack software just to catch the hacker. If you receive a message or e-mail in which there is a temptation to claim that you have won so much money, click on the link or provide bank information. Never make the mistake of doing so.

Also, when we download and install an app from our Play Store or App Store on our smartphone, it asks for a variety of permissions. We allow all permissions without reading them. Doing so can be overwhelming and can lead to information being stolen from your phone and hacked. Permission should always be given after thorough reading. In particular, third-party apps or modified apps should not be granted without the required permissions and should always be used with caution.

A hacker can hack into your devices and steal all kinds of information such as call details, messages, personal photos, emails, bank information, passwords, etc. to free up your bank account or put you in a lot of trouble. One should always be alert and vigilant to avoid such cyber-attacks. Whenever an application or software is to be downloaded, it must be downloaded from a trusted website or app store, avoid installing third-party applications or cracked software and never open redundant links.
