Weight Loss Hackers
Hackers are looking for a way into your computer; and they're going through your insecurity.
According to a survey conducted by Intel security about 88% of consumers have clicked on an ad for some kind of diet or fitness program. The survey of 15,000 people between 21 and 54 also found that 30% had purchased something from those ads without knowing whether or not it’s a secure site. Experts say this is like buying pills from a person on the street corner without knowing what they are.
They say cyber criminals are getting smart and know that before summer hits people are looking to drop the extra pounds they picked up over the past few months. So it's pretty common to see more ads and emails promising a quick way to slim down.
Experts say the thing to remember is that if the offer seems too good to be true then it probably is. You should also keep your devices updated with the latest anti-virus software to keep from catching anything. And next time, maybe just hit the gym.
