Cyber Attacks blog

With cyber-attacks becoming more common and sophisticated, it’s essential to have reliable solutions in place. At MPR IT Solutions, we offer end-to-end cybersecurity solutions that can protect your business from costly breaches. 

Understanding the Most Common Cyber Attacks

In today’s digital age, businesses face an increasing number of cyber attacks that can result in devastating consequences. Phishing scams, ransomware attacks, and malware infections are among the most common types of cyber threats that modern organisations need to guard against. Hackers can also exploit vulnerabilities in application security or authentication measures to gain unauthorised access to sensitive data stored on cloud solutions. However, with our end-to-end cybersecurity solutions at MPR IT Solutions including antivirus software and proactive threat monitoring services, you can minimise the risk of costly breaches and protect your business from harm.


Phishing attacks are a common form of cybercrime that involve tricking individuals into giving away sensitive information, such as login credentials or financial details. Here are three types of phishing attacks you should be aware of:

  • Email phishing scam attackers send malicious emails with convincing language and links to fake websites designed to steal personal information.
  • Social media phishing attack attackers use social media platforms to spread fraudulent content in an attempt to lure users into providing sensitive data.
  • Smishing (SMS phishing) is similar to email scams but instead uses text messages.

To protect your business from these threats, it’s important to consider cybersecurity solutions like antivirus software, application security measures, and authentication protocols. Cloud solutions can also help keep your data safe by keeping it off vulnerable local systems. Minimising risk is key when working towards improving efficiency in operations while protecting the valuable assets held within any modern business today.


Crypto ransomware attacks can be devastating for businesses as they encrypt important data and demand a hefty payment to release it. Locker ransomware attacks, on the other hand, lock users out of their devices entirely until a fee is paid. Preventing these types of cyberattacks requires robust antivirus software and effective authentication processes.

Locker ransomware attacks can completely lock users out of their devices until a fee is paid.

Scareware or rogue security software lures users into installing fake applications that claim to protect their systems but actually infect them with malware. This type of attack highlights the importance of application security and cloud solutions that can detect and prevent unauthorised installations from occurring in the first place. Protect your business today by implementing comprehensive cybersecurity solutions that cover all aspects of your operations.


Malware is malicious software that can infiltrate your network and cause havoc. This type of cyber threat includes Trojans, viruses, and spyware. Here’s what you need to know about these types of malware:

  • Trojans: disguised as harmless applications, these programs are designed to provide unauthorised access or steal sensitive information.
  • Viruses: self-replicating programs that spread by infecting other files and systems.
  • Spyware: designed to monitor user activity without their knowledge or consent.

Protecting your business from malware requires a multi-layered approach including application security, authentication measures, and antivirus solutions. With our cloud-based cybersecurity solutions at MPR IT Solutions, you can rest assured knowing your business is safe from costly breaches.

SQL Injection

In-band SQLi attacks target vulnerable web applications and can be devastating for businesses. Hackers use this method to exploit authentication mechanisms, gain access to sensitive data, or even take control of the entire system. Blind SQLi attacks, on the other hand, involve sending malicious input that doesn’t generate a visible response from the application, making it harder to detect such an attack.

To make matters worse, attackers also employ out-of-band SQLi where they don’t rely on receiving feedback from the application server but instead send information back through another channel like email or DNS queries. This makes it difficult for antivirus software or other cloud solutions designed for application security to detect these types of attacks.

At MPR IT Solutions we understand how important cybersecurity is in protecting your business against costly breaches. That’s why our end-to-end IT solutions prioritise security at every stage of development and deployment so you can focus on achieving your goals without worrying about cyber threats.
