Run/ Playbook Part 1: Malware
With the increase in technology, Malware attacks are becoming very popular. The most common type of Malware attack these days is Trojan horse. A Trojan horse is a type of malware which misleads the users by bluffing them. It is a malicious program which contains the virus that hackers used to get access to the systems. A recent malware attack occurred to me in which hackers tried to access the sensitive data of the company. The malware attack which they used to attack my system was Trojan horse (Chunming, 2003). I recently installed software which I found useful, but it was designed to access the sensitive data from my system. The system started to crash and freezes repeatedly. There was a weird increase in the usage of internet on the system. Antivirus stopped working and applications opened up unexpectedly. It’s challenging to find Trojan virus because usually people consider every software useful and they don't know what is happening at the backend.
The trojan can be of different types. When they are activated on the system, they may annoy user by deleting their files and destroying their information from their system. Some Trojans are even dangerous then malicious software’s because they are designed to be more annoying. The most important thing to rescue yourself from these viruses is to download software’s which are from verified sources. Don't download or install software's which are not from a verified source because you don't know whether it is a software or Trojan attack if anyone suffers from a Trojan attack that individual should suddenly turn of the internet to avoid severe damage (White et al., 2017). Trojans also provide access at the backend to the hackers so that they can access your personal information. They cannot harm users unless users run them on their systems.
The strategy of cybersecurity is very crucial regarding data protection of the owner's business, confidentiality of their customers and malware attacks in all online businesses (Zhang, 2018). What's more, with information fissures such as Trojan’s virus on the ascent, organization’s security, client, and worker data turned into significantly vital factors for every business in the market.
