Hackers keep an eye on your email account; negligence can cause harm

AUG 09 (WTN) - In this world of technology, people are connected to the internet in crores due to some reason. Students, businessmen, professional and employees do their work through the Internet. But, it has been observed that the more the use of internet is increasing, the more the cases of cybercrime related to it are also increasing.

By the way, the incidence of cybercrime happened more due to the negligence of internet users. Incidents of cybercrime occur, when any user using the Internet, gets lured, or then accidentally makes mistakes. According to people involved in cyber security, most incidents of cyber crime occur on e-mail itself; as e-mail is the softest target of hackers.

According to research, cybercrime frauds mostly target Internet users through e-mail. As soon as the user is negligent on the e-mail, cybercrime perpetrators make them their victims. When a cyber security firm named ‘Barracuda Networks’ did research on about 3.6 lakh e-mails, it found that there are 12 common fake e-mail ‘subject lines’ which commonly sent in e-mails to most people, and this is where hacking begins.

For your information, let you know that e-mail is one of the weakest mediums through which people are often being victimized by dangerous links or malware. It has been seen that whenever an e-mail comes, users don’t pay much attention to its subject and open the e-mail without reading the subject. But for your information, let you know that opening the e-mail without reading the subject, or without checking the sender, is a gross negligence in itself.

As soon as a user opens an e-mail without reading the subject or checking the sender, the hackers find it easy to hack the user's account, and with the slightest negligence of the user, the hackers will be able to hack the user's account. After research, it has been found that there are 12 such ‘subject lines’ on e-mails, which are mostly used by hackers to send fake e-mails.

Let us tell you what those 12 subject lines are, which are the lines used by hackers to send fake emails; 1 - Request, 2 - Follow Up, 3 - Urgent / Important, 4 - Direct Deposit, 5 - Purchase, 6 - Payroll, 7 - Payment Status, 8 - Re:, 9 - Hello, 10 - Invoice Due, 11 - Expenses , 12 - Are you available? / Are you at your desk? If you receive any e-mail written from these subject lines, then you need to take special care.

If you get an e-mail written in any of these 12 subject lines, then be careful, because hackers can get information related to your bank account, debit card and credit card through those subject lines. Don’t be negligent on receiving any e-mail with such subject lines, and don’t provide any financial information including bank account, debit card and credit card. Remember that you can prevent your bank account, debit card and credit card from being hacked by your carefulness on e-mail.
