Not Vetting Phone Calls & Login Forums
Hacking doesn’t just involve lines of code and passwords anymore. In fact, there’s been an increase in social engineering attacks — “hacking” people, in other words. If you need an example, just think of phishing campaigns or scam phone calls.
To avoid these types of attacks, it’s always a best practice to keep a close eye on unsolicited emails and phone calls. If you get a communication you weren’t expecting, it never hurts to just hang up or delete the email and contact the supposed sender/caller through a verified medium.
