Kevin Mitnick
Somebody could send you an office document or a PDF file, and as soon as you open it, it's a booby trap and the hacker has complete control of your computer. Another major problem is password management. People use the same password on multiple sites, so when the hacker compromises one site, they have your password for everywhere else.

Kevin Mitnick
The hacker mindset doesn't actually see what happens on the other side, to the victim.
10
Kevin Mitnick
