Why Zero-Click Cyberthreats Is A Cause For Concern

Zero-click attacks require no action from the victim – meaning that even the most advanced users can fall prey to serious cyber hacks and spyware tools

Why Zero-Click Cyberthreats Is A Cause For Concern

Human error is the greatest contributor to cyberattacks. We have pointed out the importance of training and/or education to stop the almost unavoidable from happening. We’ve been convinced that the answer to defending against cyberthreats is to keep the unsuspecting from clicking on phishing emails and infecting devices and systems with malware. Although that’s still essential, cyberthreats nowadays are becoming more sophisticated.

There are zero-click attacks that don’t require human error. These attacks depend on specially formed data like that used for emails, SMS messages, MMS messages, voice messages and calls, with code that can make your system vulnerable and function less effectively. These systems are generally communication platforms for email and messaging that receive data before determining whether the delivery is reliable.  

Why Zero-Click Cyberthreats Is A Cause For Concern

Zero-click attacks are hard to detect. Your device might slow down temporarily or the mobile mail app will suddenly crash. The content, an email, message or call, won’t automatically stay on the device. Although the devices did receive exploit emails, they aren’t on the mail server.

To defend against zero-click attacks, keep the operating system, firmware and apps on all devices up to date. Download apps only from official stores and uninstall apps that are not used anymore. Beware of requests for consent to install new apps, download unknown files, or click on doubtful links.
