Hackers in North Korea tried to sabotage nearly 80 business in things like finance, telecommunications, energy and defense around the world. Governments were also targeted. Pyongyang, capital of North Korea believed to handle some of the most sophisticated hacking machines in the world, though the North Korean government has long denied anything related to cyber attacks.
Identity Theft will get easier by the days if people keep using the same passwords for different accounts. Individuals usually throw their mail out unripped. Well, identity theft can go as far as someone finding mail with someones Name, Address and other personal info right there on the front of the envelope. Cyberattacks can hit your phone by simply connecting to “Free Wi-Fi” at a nearby cafe. Cyberattacks are floating around is sniffing out it’s next victim and nobody even notices.
Elementary schools are using more and more technology on the daily to make school more enjoyable for students. Though, Cyberhackers are taking action against district schools now, (reportedly K-12) and doing actions such as stealing tax dollars and altering school records. As time flies by, the term “Cyber-Secure” loses it’s meaning.
I believe a smart car could be hacked. If your car has been made within the last 3 to 4 years, it definitely could be sabotaged. Although smart cars hold the highest safety rating, it doesn’t say anywhere that they couldn’t be sabotaged through something as simple as a smart phone or desktop. Smart cars could be unlocked and stolen through a smartphone if they are hacked correctly, they could kill your steering wheel allowing you to have an accident. I prefer older cars, as an unpopular opinion just because the paranoia of having someone in your system and you not even knowing about it sends a shiver down my spine.
The bank should’ve taken action as soon as possible. If he’s been doing it for months, that shows that the bank is irresponsible if a worker is literally stealing money from the ATM located in the bank. They should have kept an eye on him from the first time he’s tried/attempted to take money that wasn’t his. This shows that machines such as ATM’s don’t need to be hacked through passwords, all they need is literal time. Something so simple as a bottle machine can be hacked, so a person who is proficient in computers can definitely reprogram an ATM machine to meet the hackers standards.
