About the Cyber Threat
The cyber attackers had targeted the US elections, which also assaulted the countrywide Internet, including different recognised websites like eBay and Netflix. It is believed that the internet hackers played dirty by leaking the official private information and documents and also tampered with the IoT systems and voting machines. 10 major states in the US also claimed that these internet sleuths had made a backdoor entry into their system. This has raised concerns regarding the authenticity of the election system and technology.
Infected IoT devices are another major cause of concern, making the cyber-attacks more effective. Poor and ineffective security services may cause damage to the system and the hackers can enter into it and corrupt it easily. No encrypted devices and coding password make it easy for the hackers to breach the security and hack it.
It is always advisable to find a better way to secure the system and protect it from hackers. The hackers are very intelligent and can use different ways and technologies to enter the system and leak information from it. If these hackers can enter into the state systems and high official systems then it will be much easier for them to enter the system of the novice users since they do not have much knowledge about system security. Their system can be compromised very easily.
Researchers suggest that there is a challenge for the civilization as the number of IoT devices being hacked is increasing day by day. A report by Garter Inc. suggests that 6.4 billion IoT devices were hacked in the year 2016 alone which will be increased to 20.8 billion by 2020.
