October 28, 2016

The attack to Vietnam VPS server to small companies does not bring more benefits to hacker than large companies.

However, we should know that attack of hackers to small companies is to get the data and information in order to carry out larger attacks. These attacks can cause leakage of important information such as the personal information of members in the government, banking account and so on.

But today, things have changed. With just a simple tip, the amateur hackers can send malicious software that can get thousands of IP addresses of servers automatically.

The hacker also installs spyware (software collects information from the server) or Trojan horse to the website through security vulnerabilities of Java and Flash. One common way is to send thousands of phishing mail to make user confuse. When users open these fake emails, the malicious code can be installed in the computer immediately.

Besides that, the internal network and the cloud computing services are target objectives of hackers.

Once hackers have the right to access to the enterprise’s CRM system, they can cause serious consequences.

The invisible influence is the main reason that makes the small and medium enterprises went bankrupt. If the hacker does not take money from the banking account, you will have to spend a lot of money to resolve invisible consequences that they left.

Business owners need to be aware of the importance of the data security. In case you use anonymous tools, hackers can still use automated hacking tools to exploit the vulnerabilities of the business to attack.
