On-line Property Purchase will be Disastrous
Peers and Pundits says that unless you touch and feel the property, you just cant buy on paper or on-line. Surprises are on your way, always.
Real Estate is local business. Heterogeneous in nature, real estate cannot be replaced or duplicated. Can one duplicate Taj Mahal? Peers and Pundits says that unless you touch and feel the property, you just cant buy on paper or online. Surprises are on your way, always. Will 2015 be a happy new year for internet users? Not if cyber criminals have their way.On-line security companies have been making their predictions for 2015, from the malware that will be trying to weasel its way onto our computers and smartphones to the prospect of cyberwar involving state-sponsored hackers. Here’s a summary of what you should be watching out for online in 2015, based on the predictions of companies including BitDefender, KPMG, AdaptiveMobile, Trend Micro, BAE Systems, WebSense, InfoSec Institute, Symantec, Kaspersky, Proofpoint and Sophos. The Gurdian wrote on its website : Targeted attacks and sophisticated spam The more we do and share online, the more vulnerable we may be to “targeted” attacks to steal our passwords and data. “It is possible that our willingness to share and shop online will let criminals become more selective about who they target,” suggests Stephen Bonner of KPMG. “They won’t need to maintain the current ‘hit and hope’ approach of spear phishing, instead only attacking specific users and computers based on the data these give away about their owners.” Meanwhile, you may see more spam emails in your inbox in 2015, as the technology used to send them becomes more sophisticated. “Cybercriminals upping their game are perfecting their campaign abilities previously associated only with advanced, targeted attacks. These advanced tactics designed to evade most modern email security solutions are quickly becoming the new norm as more sophisticated email threats increase,” suggests WebSense. “As a result, although spam volumes are decreasing, most users will begin to witness an increase in the amount of spam they receive in their inbox, because most email security measures will be incapable of detecting them in the Cloud scrubbing prior to passing to a user’s inbox.” “Cybercriminals will go after bigger targets rather than home users as this can generate more profits for them. We will see more data breach incidents with banks, financial institutions, and customer data holders remaining to be attractive targets,” suggests Trend Micro. “Weak security practices like not using two-factor authentication and chip- and- pin technology continue to persist in the banking sector. These practices will cause financially motivated threats to grow in scale throughout the coming year.” The soty further wrote : The huge number of people using social networks like Facebook is proving an appetising target formalware developers: BitDefender has already published its roundup of popular Facebook scams in 2014, for example. “Malicious links hidden in atrocious Facebook videos will be on the rise in 2015,” warns the company. “Malicious ‘beheading and murder’ videos are expected to multiply in the following year. Behaviour analysts and psychologists say teenagers are the most susceptible to clicking on shocking videos, as their empathy for victims of violence is lower.” Unquote. While you are looking at online walkthrough and videos, hackers must have entered into your privacy and sensitive data, financial data and banking passwords. Mumbai cyber Crime had over time cases where cyber crime for financial transactions happens every day. A risky on-line purchase is not just putting your personal and financial data and info on public domain but purchasing on-line properties leads to permanent legal battles and unpleasant surprises. After all, Real Estate is heterogeneous in nature.
