Why would my computer get hacked?

March 22, 2013

Here’s why.  A hacked pc or server can be used for multiple nefarious activities.  Would you even know if your server stuck back in the closet was serving spam before your internet service provider cut off your internet access?  Most business owners would not.  It happened to one of my clients who added an additional pc in a conference room cabinet and never told us or installed any security or windows updates.  Guess what- one Monday morning the DSL internet provider cut us off and we got blacklisted by an international spam filter.  It was a hard and expensive lesson!
