If your computer affected by virus, data theft happens in which any types of files might be stolen.
Most recent Trojan horse virus is developed to steal the images, photos from your hard drive such as C:, D: and E: drives.
The malware mainly attacks .JPG, .JPEG and .DMP file from your hard drives. To protect your PC from this malware attack, one thing you can do is stop using FTP right of entry on your firewalls. Although that might seem tremendous, I recommend to you that you shouldn’t allow FTP right of entry to start with.
FTP should have died a long time ago and you can help. Just refuse to use it. Web host require FTP for your website? FIND A NEW HOST. Your password should never be transmitted in plain text, therefore you should never use FTP.
Sometimes it is hard to move on from tried and true methods, but here is another reason to put the final nail in FTP’s already well sealed coffin.
It might also be a good time to review what protocols you allow to exit your firewall unfettered and whether they are fit for purpose or not.
