Seasons Greeting to one and all,
Remember to have fun if you can and avoid clicking on those phishing links, opening those ‘too good to be true’ emails.
Additionally this year, be caution from calls claiming to be from BT or Microsoft suggesting that your computer has been hacked. They will try to install some remote access software then ask you to go to your bank website. Once in they will freeze you out while they transfer money from your account to theirs.
The software is not malicious so anti-virus software can not detect their malicious intent. It’s a Social Engineering attack that is becoming more common.
Politely say “thank you for letting me know, you’ll contact your IT support people to take a look”, put the phone down and if you feel unsure, email or call tKnowIT.
Our services will be running over the holiday period and, depending upon which one’s you have, monitoring, protecting and maintaining your systems and alerting us to any problems.
Let’s make it a Happy New Year and not a Hacky New Year
Hope to see you all in the New Year
