jwren2at December 12,2016 The heist that Gonzalez did was crazy! 90 million credit cards! I'm sure he thought he was invincible at the time. There are so many businesses that aren't security minded and are easy targets. Unfortunately, these small businesses could easily be shut down. I find it very interesting that this didn't make headlines and that they try to keep things like this under wrap.

We need to educate people on how to use technology wisely so that it can help us avoid sharing out personal details to anyone over the internet or even phone call.

Considering most people take their phones with them almost everywhere, the potential for espionage and financial damage is very serious. However, the user can prevent some mobile device attacks by simply being cautious about what they download. Some install apps without reading the permissions cautiously. A lot of attacks on mobile devices recently have been due to users installing specific apps via unofficial streams, specifically jailbreaking.
