It feels as if everyday a new threat appears in the world of cyber security.
I’m sure most of you have heard of Google—that one tech giant slowly taking over the world? Recently a Chinese team of hackers successfully exploited new vulnerabilities found in Googles web browser Chrome. Fortunately this was occurring at a hacking competition and wasn’t being abused in the wild, and the vulnerabilities these hackers found were very quickly patched up by Google (for the full story, read this article).
If hackers were able to find vulnerabilities within Google Chrome, think of what a team of hackers could do to you! Like Google, it is important to be aware of where our vulnerabilities are, and what information needs to be protected. The world of cyber security is always changing so its very important to stay up to date.
