The emails may contain malicious links which once clicked, can make your entire system vulnerable to being exploited. Malware will start executing itself once it breaks into the system. The malware opens up the communication channel, and soon, the hacker can get into your system. The hacker may also use the infected computer to break into the other system. 

  • Key Malware

USB Malwares are very common and hard to detect. Someone may insert an infected USB into your system. It is necessary to use the USB effectively so that you can avoid the risk of being infected. But, apart from that, the malware can also be inserted into your system by suspicious activity. 

  • Engineering password

This may be a little tough, but it is not impossible. The employees, when accessing a company document remotely, may assume a wrong password and username. The hacker usually tracks this. Once the hacker tracks the right credentials, they may use it later on to access different networks. Apart from that, the hackers too, may try to implement the guessing and engineering aspect to break in your system.
