 Watch out for Bot Malware Growing Threat

Mentioning bot malware might make you think of the impressive chatbots powered by artificial intelligence that have been receiving a lot of media attention recently.

Sadly, this doesn't make for an exciting news story. Bots are automated programs, and bot malware poses a security threat you should consider.

Malware bots are especially risky because they steal comprehensive user profiles that convey a complete picture of your ID, PIN, and other details. This potentially makes it easy for attackers to bypass strong security measures like multiple-factor authentication (MFA).

Typically, suppose an individual is attempting to find your usernames and passwords. In that case, it indicates that they haven't yet gained access to your account since they don't have access to your multifactor authentication system. However, they can bypass security measures and disable multifactor authentication by using your cookies and device settings.

Profile information that has been stolen is sold for as little as 5 dollars exclusively on the dark web.
