Attackers can offer to download or install new software

Attackers can offer to download or install new software, or update the old one, or simply download an image. All these files can hide malicious programs that allow a hacker to gain access to user data, and sometimes remotely control their computer. Usually, such an attack passes unnoticed by the user – the picture really opens, the installed program really performs the stated actions. To detect such an attack, most often you can only at the very initial stage – the message came from an unknown contact.
