Assalamu’alaikum. Well, hello there! How are you today? ^^
In this post, I want to share with you guys about the lesson that me and my friends have learned in our last class. It was the chapter ‘Networking/Computer Security’.

Then, we learned about unauthorized access or unauthorized use.
There are two types of unauthorized access, which are:-
2. Interception of Communication
The word "hacking" has two definitions. The first definition refers to the hobby/profession of working with computers. The second definition refers to breaking into computer systems.
In order to protect our computer or our system from these culprits, we could use:-
1. Access Control System
Then, we learned about computer sabotage. There are two types of computer sabotage which are viruses and malware and also denial of service.
Some of the examples of viruses and malware are:-
3. Trojan Horses
4. Mobile Malware
Next, we learned about identity theft. There are three types of identity theft. They are:-
1. Identity theft
