Over the past several weeks, this “Man-in-the-middle attack” has been growing and targeting people whom work remotely. Although the company should have higher security to fix this problem but it’s also the users or clients to watch out of unusual activities to their connections.
So who said working from home is nice and fun? ERR not really, there are lots of things to watch out for. Fun I don’t think so, more fun at work place. Nice? maybe because you get to work with your leg on the sofa table, or on your short or pajamas, but it’s not all that nice when you don’t have internet, or when your computer is dead, or power goes out, let alone being hacked by this “Man-in-the-middle attack”
