I was listening to the "Windows Weekly" podcast (Great show btw: link) and I heard them talking about a new way that hackers are getting on your system. Basically they will send you spam emails with a resume attached that says "I'm sorry, we just don't have any positions available right now, attached is your application."
Being the curious person that you are, you open up the file to check to see if it was really you (after all, you didn't apply for any jobs lately)... And boom! Your PC is infected.
Another way they've started to use that I found interesting was using fake parking tickets... Basically they would leave fake parking tickets on a car, with a website to go to in order to get it paid off. That website would direct you some to software to pay the ticket... and guess what? That software was malware designed to hack your computer.
Hey all, Dave here. I hope you enjoy the random things that I find across the web, and my spin on what they mean. Feel free to leave any comments if you think I'm way off on something.
