What is malicious hacking?

👋 Hey guys, it’s Chip, and today we’re going to talk about a very important topic: Malicious Hacking! 🕵️‍♂️🔐

Have you ever heard of hacking? It’s when someone tries to gain access to a computer system without permission. 😠 And when they use a type of software called “ransomware,” they can cause a lot of trouble! 🚨

Imagine this: one day, a person receives an email from an unknown sender. They open it, and suddenly, all of their files are locked! 🔒 A message appears on the screen, demanding payment in exchange for the files to be unlocked. That’s ransomware! And it’s dangerous because it can affect all kinds of important information, like your family photos or your school projects. 😱

But what happens when a hacker goes after even more valuable information? 🤔 When they target sensitive data belonging to businesses or governments, the consequences can be devastating! 💔

Not only can malicious hacking cause financial damage, but it can also impact people’s privacy and security. For example, imagine if a hospital’s computer system was hacked, and the personal information of patients was leaked to the public. This could be very dangerous and unethical! 😔

In fact, the ethical effects of malicious hacking on society are significant. It can lead to a loss of trust in technology and online services, and it can make people feel vulnerable and unsafe. We all have a responsibility to use the internet in a respectful and safe way! 🤝

So remember, guys: be careful with your online activity, and if you ever suspect that you’ve been hacked, tell an adult or a teacher right away! Together, we can work to keep our online world safe and secure. 💪
