Feature Friday with Will Hunt

How You’re Being Hacked

“Hackers are breaking the systems for profit. Before, it was about intellectual curiosity and pursuit of knowledge and thrill, and now hacking is big business.” Kevin Mitnick

2021:23

Not a day goes by now where you don’t read about some sort of cyberattack and how the motive was profit for the hackers.  But what do hackers do with a stolen database of encrypted passwords?  How do they breach systems to launch ransomware or bots or other exploitative software?  Glad you asked.

Will Hunt has been professional hacker for almost a decade (he’s been working in tech even longer).  He’s hired to break into companies’ systems to find vulnerabilities that can be walled off to make the company more secure.  On this episode of Did You Know That? we discuss the cyber world from a hacker’s point of view.  Little behind the curtain look at this burgeoning business.
