So, in today’s lifetime, we have forgotten about exercising and maintaining our health issues. However, as of 2020, everyone again has gone high for changing lifestyles while taking care of their daily hygiene. Helpful, but to what extent?
Even though we have got so much from god, we shouldn’t try to brag & show our daily live activities online, for which we do not care so much. Due to that, we get duped, and our data gets into the hands of the wrong people. They use it for their ill intentions and make our lives miserable as hell.
Just think about those lives whose data has been hacked by cybercriminals from AIIMS’s servers. Adversaries attack paralyzed the PC services at the government hospital for over 15 Days. The management was left to manual mode.
