A very common occurrence these days is that your computer has been hacked. If you recently had this experience, please read the information below.
We are living in a digital age where computers are used not just for entertainment and gaming but for various other tasks. These may include simple Google searches, research, news, or online banking. In Australia, due to a recent spike in online scams, these simple tasks are becoming more complex. We have recently experienced a high call volume from our elderly clients where their computer got compromised. These scammers used different techniques to infiltrate through the home networks and computers. One of the most common ones is social engineering.
Social engineering is a type of scam in which a hacker manipulates someone to make them believe they are from a trusted source. This trust is then used to gain access to a computer, infect it, and then steal the information for financial gain. If that sounds familiar and you have recently been the victim of this fraud, we can help.
