The cyber security industry has been in a state of upheaval since 2016, with the US presidential election turning into a cyber war that saw hackers try to disrupt the US financial system and spread misinformation about US election outcomes.
The cyber-attacks have been around for a long time, but they have recently gained some traction.
In February, a hacker stole data from the home of the US president.
In March, an American politician was found dead in a hotel room after being poisoned with ransomware.
In June, the Office of Personnel Management was hacked by a cyber-attack that stole data on 1.7 million people.
In September, a ransomware campaign was uncovered that had infected more than a million machines.
These attacks were followed by a new wave of cyber-crime dubbed the “cryptowar” that has been spreading for several months now.
What is a cyber security scam?
Cyber-security scams are a type of cybercrime that target vulnerable users or organisations by infecting them with malicious software.
This malware is then used to steal personal data, such as passwords, from their computers or steal financial information.
Some of the scams targeted by hackers include phishing scams, ransomware and botnets.
The threat of ransomware and cyber-bullying The cyberbullying of vulnerable users and organisations has been on the rise for some time.
This year alone, more than $500 million has been paid out to victims of ransomware, according to a report by cybersecurity firm Arbor Networks.
The ransomware attack of June last year that wiped the personal data of more than 2 million Australians is considered the first ransomware attack to hit the global internet.
In the months leading up to the election, hackers were also targeting social media sites, media organisations, film production companies and universities, and targeted businesses that could be targeted by social media attacks.
Many of these scams were carried out on social media accounts and websites.
A botnet is a network of machines that together control the flow of information and information-gathering for a particular purpose, such a spamming botnet.
It is used to spread malware.
The recent attacks against social media platforms have also led to an increase in the number of victims affected by the ransomware attacks.
The amount of money stolen from victims of the ransomware attack was estimated at $200 million.
In a recent report, cyber-security firm Kaspersky Lab said that the ransomware ransomware campaign had been used to attack more than 100 organisations, with a total of $9.2 million stolen in the span of one month.
The US election: The cyber attack and the election The cyber attacks on social networks have been the main reason for the election’s high profile.
After the presidential election, US intelligence agencies started looking into the cyberattacks.
After investigating the data breaches and other incidents, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that “this cyber-criminal enterprise is attempting to influence the US electorate”.
It added that the cyber attacks were “part of a broader campaign to affect US elections across the world”.
The US government did not disclose the nature of the attacks.
In an attempt to avoid becoming a victim of a ransomware attack, many organisations and individuals started to install antivirus software, as well as encrypt their networks, using the “Lock down your computers” option on their Windows machines.
Some organisations also started to implement additional measures to protect their systems.
Cyber security threats around the world The recent ransomware attacks on Twitter and Facebook caused social media companies to take further measures to secure their systems against cyber-criminals.
Twitter and Microsoft have both said that they will be making it harder for ransomware attacks to spread.
However, the US government has not revealed the extent of the cyber threat.
It has also not announced a specific list of organisations that have been targeted by ransomware, which may include some companies whose employees have been infected.
In response, Facebook said that it would be making its social media platform more secure.
Facebook has also started working with cyber security experts to develop a security solution for the social network, which is expected to be released in the next few weeks.
Twitter has also said that its platform will be more secure by installing an encryption software called Lockdown.
Facebook, Twitter and other major social media firms have all been urged to put in place additional measures in an attempt at preventing ransomware attacks in the future.
A list of ransomware threats In September this year, the United States House of Representatives passed a cyber crime bill.
The bill allows the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to take legal action against cyber criminals, and also prohibits individuals from engaging in “cyber theft” by issuing criminal sanctions.
The new law also allows for a US Attorney General to initiate criminal prosecution for anyone involved in cyber-terrorism.
Cyber criminals, meanwhile, are not allowed to engage in “malicious computer activity” or engage in conduct that “causes or attempts
