In an increasingly digital world, email has become a vital means of communication for individuals and businesses alike. However, the prevalence of email hacking and the potential consequences it can have on privacy and security cannot be ignored. This article aims to shed light on the latest method employed by email hackers and provide practical tips to help you stay safe and secure in your online communications.

Email hackers have become so sneaky, it is getting harder and harder to stay informed and safe.  The newest hack uses a link that for all intents and purposes looks real.  

By changing the font to Cyrillic, the hacker creates a false link.  If you click on this link, they gain access to your computer.  Email hacking poses a significant threat to individuals and organizations alike which is why ETC is always asking clients to upload sensitive documents and not send them by email.  The risks are high.   

By following IT professional guidance, you can enhance your email security and minimize the risk of falling victim to email hackers. Individuals can also help protect themselves by typing the web address into the browser instead of clicking on links.

Remember to maintain a proactive approach by staying informed and regularly reviewing your security practices to adapt to the evolving nature of cyber threats. Safeguarding your online communications is a responsibility that should never be taken lightly.
