Artificial Intelligence has overtaken the industry ever since it is born. It has become a double-sided sword for cybersecurity. Where we use this technology to guard our systems, attackers use this technology only to breach the cybersecurity by hacking it.

These days, cybercrimes have got so smart and advance by adopting new technologies, they have started taking out cybercrime more innovatively and sophistically. The number of cybercrimes has increased so much that it has given tough to the security admins to stay ahead of the attackers. 
 
 
And, in the e-commerce business, these cybercrimes have got increased too much. As most of the data to breach is available on e-commerce websites. That is why it has become important to know and identify the types of threats you have to save your website and its data. 
 
For your consideration, I have brought a list of cyber-security threats that you need to watch out. These are the cyber crimes, which companies providing top web services like WordPress development services, take care while building up the website.
 
So, let us begin:
 
Hacking AI defense
 
Artificial Intelligence has overtaken the industry ever since it is born. It has become a double-sided sword for cybersecurity. Where we use this technology to guard our systems, attackers use this technology only to breach the cybersecurity by hacking it.
 
Increase in Crypto-jacking Attacks
 
Crypto-jacking has become one of the biggest cybercrimes. It has been rising since 2018. What attackers do is, use infected websites, malicious links, and online ads with javascript code to generate cryptomining code in the target's system. This can further attack third-party computers, mobile phones, tablets or any other connected devices to hijack them to mine the cryptocurrency for the attackers by using their resources.
 
Mobile Malware
 
The rise in the usage of mobile devices is not spared from the eyes of cybercriminals. They have also started looking for more tools and attack the iPhone and Android users. Cybercriminals also build fake apps to enter the app stores and then to the user's mobile. And this trend of fake apps is growing in 2019 as well.
 
Sophisticated Supply Chain Attacks
 
These days, supply-chain attacks have been growing as attackers have recognized the advantages of hacking the supply-chain. Previously, it has been reported that a notable amount of supply-chain was attacked including brands like Delta Airlines. It is a very serious issue as this can bring up a deadly result in the coming future.
 
Misuse of Biometric Data
 
Biometrics have been in great importance since last year to authenticate people for Banks and Institutes. Whereas, cybercriminals, has started moving towards biometric data also and have started hacking the systems to reach the biometric data. If you will use comprised confidential data, this will lead cybercriminals to perform cams of higher levels.
 
Cloud Computing Infrastructure
 
Last, but not the least type od cybercrime that is undertaken by cybercriminals is, hacking the cloud services. It has been seen that attackers hack some of the most popular cloud-based services like Google Cloud Platform. Hackers are found to use cheap cloud services as well, for hosting their DDoS, so that they can target end-users and other cloud providers.
