Most read news of the week

Spying through computer networks is becoming increasingly important and requires people and organizations to form in the digital defense. The simplest human error can open a security breach unpredictable for our security and privacy dimensions, as happened to dozens of actresses and models United States when their most intimate photos were aired in the famous attacks known as CelebGate, summer 2014.

This week we learned that one of the authors of the leaks of CelebGate, Edward Majerczyk, 28, has pleaded guilty to hacking Apple's cloud, iCloud and Gmail accounts of more than 300 people, including Hollywood celebrities . Majerczyk used phishing techniques to get the credentials of their victims, between November 2013 and August 2014. They sent messages that come from computer
simulated up your Internet service provider.
But the CelebGate is nothing when compared with what it can mean a leak data of this caliber in a corporation, something that we hear more and more assiduously. This week ESET claimed to have discovered a new toolkit used to spy on companies in Central and Eastern Europe.

The most frightening is that attack both great company and ordinary people is as simple as accessing your account in one of the increasingly social networks, using tricks of social engineering, the oldest art of hackers continues today working perfectly.

In this situation, the best defense is protected. In the case of organizations, surrounding himself with the best experts and building a good team of cybersecurity. In the case of nations, creating laws and protocols that protect people from cyberthreats.
