BROWSER:

A Browser is a generic term used to refer to software that lets individuals view pages from various sources, including web servers on the internet. A browser exploit is a form of malicious code that takes advantage of a flaw or vulnerability in an operating system or piece of software with the intent to breach browser security to alter a user's browser settings without their knowledge. Malicious code may exploit plugin, code and other Web technologies that cause the browser to run arbitrary code.

 

LINK:

  • Use caution when clicking links. A wrong click on a link and you can get redirected to a malicious site.
  • Social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and YouTube and other social networking sites have become popular for hackers to embed malicious links. Think about your social networking presence.
  • We pay for the Internet with our attention and our personnel data as currency. Despite the appearance of Facebook appearing in public space for free it is owned by a corporation that is not government regulated while there is no direct fee for your participation user’s pay with their paying exposed to ads.  (In the same way we pay for television) most agree to the terms of service which always involves giving up your right to privacy.
