LINKEDIN IS A REAL EL DORADO FOR CYBER-CRIMINALS

With the endless possibilities of social networks, attention should also be drawn to the dangers that they bring, and which are also not few – on the contrary, they are more numerous than ever. Depending on the sources you use, the damage from cyber crime to the world economy is estimated to be up to 500 billion dollars

LinkedIn is a real El Dorado for cyber-criminals since there they are only a few mouse clicks away from crucial information such as names and titles of employees, the structure of the company and the e-mails, which are sufficient resources to hijack the identity of senior members of the administration. The story is easy to predict: a hacker impersonates an executive and addresses a lower positioned employee of the company, and issues an order to transfer funds to an account, their account of course. The same thing can be done with the supplier of a company, which makes the fraud even more difficult to detect and therefore more damaging.

Because users of LinkedIn apart from (self)promotion often seek better jobs, there is a noticeable trend where fraudsters introduce themselves as head-hunters and thus collect valuable data. Some fake profiles are frighteningly believable, and have more than 500 contacts and a number of recommendations of other users. After establishing initial contact, a skilled hacker has no major problems in gaining the trust of the victim, after which the road is open to commit fraud. (Lider.hr)
