According to my understanding, as I have a very little technical knowledge, in our everyday life, we can easily see various forms of security attack. For example, people loose savings or money to phishing scammers. This is the common situation that we can always see in the news and social media while many organisations are trying to warn people to be aware of it. It usually happen when the victim click on a link that received in emails or social media messages. The hackers trick them to share login credentials to their bank accounts and steal their money. The phishing calls, sometimes Thai people also call ‘Call Center Gang’ that also be seen in the news and is very popular these days. This way the attackers make fraudulent calls to people and pretending they are from trusted organizations such as police or government agencies and trick the victims to give their personal information.
Another way of security attack is password attack as my classmates mentioned above. Using default password and the Brute force Attack, the attackers will try to guess (using default password is very risky because it’s very easy to guess while Brute force attack might consume a lot of time to try every possible combination until discover the right password) in order to access to the victim’s account and find their sensitive information.
