Criminals are Hacking Your PC at the Local Coffee Shop

The next time you drop into your favorite restaurant or coffee shop to sip on your preferred caffeinated beverage and plug into the public Wi-Fi network you might want to do a double take and see who’s watching you. Hackers can literally use a device like the one called “Hotspot Honeypot” to easily intercept your connection and steal full visibility of your computer. This includes access to your passwords, emails, banking information and more.

Hackers even purposefully leave behind free gifts like thumb drives (USB) that when plugged into your computer uses malware to capture private information and find vulnerabilities on your device, enabling them to comprise your entire system. See how they do it and how to protect yourself with this detailed infographic seen below.
