Beware - How safe are your servers?

Cyber criminals are selling the login information to some of the worlds largest companies servers, illegally.

Spammers and such like are buying this information so that they can access these servers for various reasons, including fraud, data theft and using them as mail relays so that they can send out millions of SPAM emails.

This information can be either purchased outright, or on an hourly 'pay as you go' basis, which could cost as little as £2 per hour.

We feel it is important to make companies aware of these potential dangers and security threats as it could cause serious disruption to your network,which in turn will cost you money.

All of this can be avoided of course with the right security measures in place, password policies and firewall set up. These are things that we at CCS Leeds can assist with.
