Spam

Spam is one of the more common methods of both sending information out and collecting it from unsuspecting people.

What it is:

  • The mass distribution of unsolicited messages, advertising or pornography to addresses which can be easily found on the Internet through things like social networking sites, company websites and personal blogs.
  • A commercial electronic message is any electronic message that encourages participation in a commercial activity, regardless of whether there is an expectation of profit.

What it can do:

  • Annoy you with unwanted junk mail.
  • Create a burden for communications service providers and businesses to filter electronic messages.
  • Phish for your information by tricking you into following links or entering details with too-good-to-be-true offers and promotions.
  • Provide a vehicle for malware, scams, fraud and threats to your privacy.

 

Spoofing

This technique is often used in conjunction with phishing in an attempt to steal your information.

What it is:

A website or email address that is created to look like it comes from a legitimate source. An email address may even include your own name, or the name of someone you know, making it difficult to discern whether or not the sender is real.

What it does:

  • Spends spam using your email address, or a variation of your email address, to your contact list.
  • Recreates websites that closely resemble the authentic site. This could be a financial institution or other site that requires login or other personal information.

 

Wi-Fi Eavesdropping

Wi-Fi eavesdropping is another method used by cyber criminals to capture personal information.

What it is:

Virtual “listening in” on information that’s shared over an unsecure (not encrypted) Wi-Fi network.

What it can do:

  • Potentially access your computer with the right equipment.
  • Steal your personal information including logins and passwords.
