A real problem in recent years, this is still one of the most common. Malware delivered to your pc can lock your data and display payment demand prompts.


This threat involves tricking the user into clicking on dangerous links typically sent to you by email. A fake website then captures your personal data and details.

Password attacks

A hacker runs software that usually systematically tries to guess your password using dictionary words or brute force by more complex combinations.
