Story of eScan on Security

With the advent of Internet and Internet-based services, we have seen a plethora of attacks which target the online users. Using these online services is not only advantageous as they provide speed and save our precious time. Online Banking accounts are associated with our email id and our email-ids are in turn associated with various social networking sites. However, one common thing which binds them all is the password. Rarely do we come across individuals who will use stringent passwords and never reuse them. However, this is not just limited to end-users. Web-services often lack basic security awareness and do not store the passwords in a secure manner. The passwords can be stolen in a variety of ways either by targeting an individual or the service-provider itself.
