Blink Home Security, a UK-based security company, says the best times to switch on the internet are now.
In a blog post published on Monday, Blink said that people using public wi-fi hotspots in London and other areas could be vulnerable to hackers.
Blink said that when people are connected to a public wi.fi hotspot, the malware on the device could be “unlimited” and that the hackers could then gain access to the user’s data.
“If you’re connected to one of these hotspots, there is a chance that the malware may be unlimited and can take over your entire computer,” Blink said in the blog post.
Blinks website, BlinkHomeSecurity.com, said it was investigating the possible attack.
