Friendship on the Internet
Cyber friendship is a novel cyberattack method in which various techniques are used to instigate weak links and potential victims to install malware and other viruses. Modern approaches to cyberattacks are convincing enough for victims to click on multiple links to gain access to any system without further complications.
Hotel Security Code
Hotel locks are an unusual method of cyberattack. In this case, cybercriminals hack smart locks to lock the hotels with their codes and demand thousands of dollars in ransomware to unlock victims from the hotels. This is a high-level, one-of-a-kind cyberattack designed to keep guests out of their rooms with luggage inside. As a result, some hotels have reverted to traditional door locking systems rather than cutting-edge technologies.
White attacks are among the most unusual data breaches in the highly volatile cryptocurrency environment. There are two kinds of hackers: black hackers and white hackers.
