Travelers and Summertime Online Hacking Scams

FG-Ian-news-wptv

Ian Marlow shares with WPTV that online hacking scams are something to be concerned about, especially during summertime when people are traveling.

“For some reason, Americans on vacation often believe cybersecurity thieves are on vacation as well. As we see every summer they most assuredly are not,” Marlow said.

Below are three helpful tips for summer travelers to avoid online hacking scams:

  1. Be cautious of free Wi-Fi connectivity
    Make sure to join the official airport network only or if possible, avoid free Wi-Fi. Attackers can create a similar network that is configured to trick you into giving up your username and password.
  2. Check before plugging your device
    Attackers regularly exploit USB chargers by loading malware onto them, which can steal information.
  3. Be on guard for travel-related email, text, and social media posts
    Attackers may try to steal travelers’ credentials through phishing campaigns that pretend to be an airline, credit card company, or the TSA.
