As we all gear up for the holidays with plans to purchase any number of items online, cyberthieves too are gearing up with more and more creative ways to steal money, credentials and critical data from any number of organizations – from financial institutions and retailers to still other organizations and even the everyday consumer. Such online criminal activities have become all the more simple for the bad guys to undertake as companies, end-users and customers/clients enlist a range of mobile devices, as well as other more traditional tools, to undertake their daily activities. Compounding this is mobile device use with the many systems, software and application vulnerabilities that crop up every day. This lethal concoction makes it easier for cybercriminals to commit fraud, steal money, pinch identities and take over accounts. We take a look at some of the most recent successful methods of such attacks and discuss practical steps organizations can take to help prevent them.
