SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – Cyber experts are seeing a rise in COVID-19 scams.
Now more than ever, people are using the internet to work, learn and stay connected. Providing criminals more opportunities for cyber-attacks.
Hackers want your data; from Social Security numbers to diplomas. Every piece of your information has a price tag.
And some people are giving it away without even knowing.
Think of it as a shopping list for cyber criminals. $1 can get you a Social Security number. $20 for a driver’s license.
Even credit card numbers and diplomas have a price. Every piece of information that makes you, you, is worth something on the Dark Web.
“There’s a whole other world on the dark Web and the black market of people in buying and selling records that have been exposed,” Cyber Security Solutions Vice President Zach Hodges said.
