Entry written by Secunia.

Kevin Mitnick, once the FBI's most-wanted hacker and now the owner of a computer security consulting firm talks about how hacking has changed in the HuffPost Tech article: ‘Kevin Mitnick, Former Fugitive Hacker, Laments How The Game Has Changed’.

According to Mitnick hacking has now become mainstream; with malware, insecure web applications, and social engineering now representing the largest cyber-security threats. He says, “Now it's a trend. 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.”

What should consumers do to protect themselves from being hacked? Mitnick recommends using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) when using an open wireless network, a free email service with two-step authentication, and the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) for automatic program updates. “Make sure your desktop software is updated because that's where people are being attacked today -- Java, Flash, Adobe Acrobat, Windows Media Player, QuickTime. These type of client-side vulnerabilities are being exploited. There is a free product by Secunia called a "Personal Software Inspector" you can download for free. It helps mitigate the risk.”
