Cyber assault

Two days ago, I heard about the news of three or four big famous companies that were raided by hackers. I was floored by the news. I took the news from a narrow-angle. My money in the bank. What will happen if they attack the bank?  The supply of data stealing products and services  is growing. Is the internet not safe anymore? I have heard about  some banks in the US or the UK. They were many fraud attempts or criminal acts on them. They blocked many attempts of hackers attack. I do not have much money in the bank but it gives a lot of pain. The right is hard. Even if you have one dollar in your account. I do not have any idea how these cybercriminals get access to those accounts. The hackers are very adept at revising their styles or methods to evade any detection.

My brother, engineer Khalid is a computer programmer. He always tells me about their methods and  it is not easy to capture them. According to my brother, those intruders have ways to get to your system. When I asked him what would happen to my money if any cyber attempt occurred. He smiled. He hasn't had much to smile about lately. The corners of his mouth turned up to show amusement, then he continued, "most of those people are very smart and genius. The matter is not about your money or my money. It's about countries and governments. Hackers tried to sneak onto the system of the ministries of defense or foreign affairs.  Of course, governments cannot do this alone. I mean to defend themselves from those attackers."

To tell you the truth, I was worried from the growing of the malicious and wicked attempts of those criminals.

  • The cyber crimes are awaful part of our life. I think banks must look for new cryptosystems for their safety. In my city there are numerous companies educate the youth of programming sofware. They learn since childhood and know everything about computer and protecting of cyber attacs...

  • Doosri dafa, bahut shukriya Seeker! Lakin kiya karega? mera pas tora paisa bank mei. I always imagin that some fraud or malicious act happen to the bank and my money will be evaporated in thin air. Those young men and women are more than smart. At least, those who carry guns and attack the bank, the police will make investigations and some way or another, they will be caught and brought to justice. I really appreciate your time and thanks for your advice and nice tips, too!

  • Muchas gracias senorita Samy! Absolutely, quite logical, but try to compare two things or rather two persons. One person is putting his hand in the water. The other one is putting his hand in the fire.  Thanks Samy for your logical information.    

  • I think it is not so unreal what you say, we all know that the Internet can facilitate steal or manipulate information

  • Mon ami Ousmane, I am afraid, believe me, I am very afraid of this situation. Those smart young men and women can do serious things to our deposits. By the end of this year, I am thinking of taking my money from the bank. Thanks Ousmane!
