I recently learnt about a cyber-attack that is different to your usual run of the mill click on the link and infect your device routine.
This attack doesn’t rely on you to do anything to actively enable it.
I know right, you were just starting to get the hang of not clicking on anything suspicious and doing all you can to keep up with your best practices and now hackers have created malware code that can be deployed without you being able to detect or stop it.
Why it is called “Drive-by” is because it can be downloaded by simply visiting a compromised site, you don’t need to physically do anything, by opening the page/app and closing it, this malware will be deployed onto your device.
