Top Five Greatest Security Risks Plaguing Upstart Webstore Frontends
If you run a website, you need to watch out for a lot of vulnerabilities. You need to watch out for both attacks on your website. Most cyber criminals targeting a website target the customer information. Targeting the financial information is far more profitable than simply attacking the website.
The first thing a website needs to worry about is fishing scams. The website itself does not get targeted from this threat. The customers get targeted. The scammers pose as the site itself trying to get an individual’s financial information. The second threat comes in the form of denial of service attacks. Denial of service attacks threaten the ability of a business to do business in the short term.
The problems listed above are minor. A far more serious problem facing websites are key loggers and people trying to intercept the customer’s credit card information. Key loggers can get the password and sell them. They can also capture credit card numbers. Once the credit cards numbers are captured they are stolen. Key loggers are often installed without the user’s knowledge. Malware scanners do remove the program if it gets detected. Of course, sometimes a web site can get hacked, but the hacks generally come from curious thrill seekers instead of malicious coders.
