Cyber attacks: Nigeria could be a key target this year

Nigeria’s government as well as the country’s financial and ICT sectors will be under increasing threat of cyber attacks this year, claims a technology expert.

In a report by The Daily Trust Tim Akano, Managing Director and CEO of New Horizons Nigeria is quoted as saying that people and institutions could fall victim to attacks from a number of threats including malware, ransomware, spear phising and social network attacks, amongst others.

He also issued the warning that because of the growth of mobile, there is expected to be an increase in mobile malware.

“Smart phones and tablet vulnerabilities will be exploited by hackers to steal information and data for commercial gains and blackmail. When the ransomware pops up while browsing on the internet disguised as a genuine message from the law enforcement agents claiming that the computer user is into something unethical and illegal on the net, the device will then be locked automatically and a message requesting the owner to pay certain sum of cash into a code to get the device unlocked will be sent,” the publication quotes Akano as saying.

Akano also highlighted the danger of what he described as “advanced, persistent threats” by hackers and the use of social networks as a base from which to initiate attacks.
