According many IT specialists the biggest problem in internet space is that the users themselves do not take seriously the issue about their security. The last dangerous breakthrough in internet security from April 2014, during which millions of passwords, numbers of debit cards and other personal information were accessible by potential computer hackers, is a proof of this fact. Actually, it is not the whole truth. People think about their security, but their actions of prevention are misled by many myths, rumors or outdated information. The dynamism in internet evolution can’t let people know the last and reliable information on this issue. People who are up to date with web security are so few that they can hardly oppose to all types of hackers and their attacks.
Based on mentioned above, the statistics come here:
Maybe many of those facts would not exist if three of four persons didn’t use the same password for several different accounts or internet services. Another problem is the lack of responsibility and imagination in creating passwords. Some of the most used passwords in the world are “1234”, “123456”, “abcd”, “abc123”, “qweqwe”, “abcabc” and many others which do not hamper the hackers. The contemporary hackers’ methods for capturing passwords are so good that the cyber criminal needs 10 minutes to hack a password of 6 lowercase. If the password consists of 7 symbols in which lower and upper case, the hacker would need 23 days. But if you make your password from at least 8 symbols and it includes not only lower and upper case, but also numbers and special symbols, then its hacking is almost impossible.
The number of people using internet is increasing – from 30% from the whole world nation till 39% (2.8 milliards). So it is not illogical that the criminal actions in this sphere are also extended. The users do not understand that the devices they use are infected till it is not already too late.
A very popular fact about internet security is that the free antivirus software is not as effective as the paid one. The last several years the free antivirus programs are in raise, although the premium packages are much better that the free ones. Do not forget that no matter that it is a question sometimes of national or world security, the cyber security business is like every other industry.
